Free Cycling Skills courses
The Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Pete West, a keen cyclist himself, attended a cycling course run by Brighton and Hove Council. These courses are free thanks to external funding, and offer help for both basic and intermediate skills.
Basic cycle maintenance (two hour course)
This course aims to increase your basic cycle maintenance skills, like doing safety checks, brake and gear adjustments, removing wheels and fixing punctures, as well as how to clean and lubricate your bike. Basic cycle maintenance courses take place in the evening during the week.
Intermediate cycle maintenance (four hour course)
This course will introduce you to advanced tools and lubricants, provide an introduction to different brake types, changing a brake cable, splitting and re-joining a chain and other advanced maintenance skills. Intermediate cycle maintenance courses take place in the morning on Mondays, Fridays or Saturdays.
