Roadside Repair

Course Description

Roadside Repair focuses on any major repairs you may need to make to your bike when you are out riding. While we won’t be covering fixing a flat or preventative maintenance we will be looking at:

  • What to keep in your tool kit and why 
  • Chain falling off your cassette or chain rings 
  • Loose bolts and critical bolts
  • Sudden brake rubbing
  • Derailleur failure
  • How to fix a broken chain

Whether you’re a beginner rider or have many miles under your tires, these skills will help you to be more self-sufficient in the case of a breakdown. This is great know-how for anyone looking to feel more confident in leading a group of riders or going on more solo trips.
