Biketreks’ Workshop Classes –

All classes are hands on and delivered in a format that is easy to understand and assumes you have little to no technical knowledge.  They won’t blind you with science and they will explain everything again and again until it’s clicked.  They have handy video’s to show you and plenty of help sheets to take away once you leave the class, and they are only at the end of the phone if you need them.

Typically a class is 2 hours long and costs £15 per head and there are generally 4-6 people involved.  As a general guide  run classes on a Sunday 10am to 12pm, but they are flexible if these days do not suit your schedule.  If there is something specific you and a bunch of friends want to learn then they are open to teaching you anything so just get in contact with them to organise something.  
So if you want to learn how your bike functions no matter what level you are at then just give them a ring 015394 31245 or  email -  info@bike-treks.co.uk - to arrange a class.
