It is also perfect for individuals, either professionals or keen amateurs wanting to gain a full understanding of bike maintenance. Velotech is recognized by the trade such as the Bicycle Association as one of the leading standards in professional bike mechanics. The course runs over four days and teaches you how to strip and rebuild a bike from scratch, taking you through all the bike's different systems in the process.

I've had a lot of experience with bikes, so thought I knew enough about bike workings to make me a competent mechanic, I was happy to discover that there was a LOT more to know, and the VelotechGold course run by Outspoken Cycles presented a lot of new knowledge in a clear and interesting way. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to gain more skills AND a qualification in good bike mechanics
