The aim is to give you the knowledge and confidence to successfully diagnose and repair faults so that you can get the most out of your bike. Could be of use to triathletes.

COMMENTS FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS
Exceeded all expectations.
Such knowledge and confidence. Friendly easy presentation. Felt comfortable asking stupid questions. Delicious food.
Excellent teaching. Perhaps trying to divide himself between too many people.
Packed a lot in very successfully.
Good level of detail but impossible to cover everything in one day. Lots of neat tips and tricks.
Very ambitious content. Difficult to cover with varied group needs. Worked for me well. Breige
