Intermediate Level Bicycle Maintenance

Event Description:
This workshop is for those that are familiar with making small adjustments on their bike already or working with tools in general, looking to get more hands-on with their own bicycle maintenance.

We will demonstrate tasks such as tube and tyre removal and replacement; brake maintenance, and replacing pads and cables; troubleshooting gear shifting and adjustments, and information on chain replacement.

While a beginner's workshop concentrates more on introductory information and small adjustments to keep the fastest wearing parts of the bike in good condition, this intermediate level session gets into the inevitable jobs or replacing those parts when they wear out.

For more information about bikes please email Mark at bikes@rediscoverycentre.ie

*Attendees must be over the age of 16

Event Date and Time:
Saturday 24th September 2022, from 10:00am until 12:30pm
