Bike Bank 20146 week Bike Maintenance training course - Velotech Accredited Courses
Following on from the success of the bike bank project in Melbourne in 2012, we worked with Melbourn Area Youth Development (MAYD) to develop a course to give a grounding in basic bike maintenance skills at Gamlingay and Cambourne. 12 young people made a series of six sessions and under the guidance of Matt, our Head Mechanic and Instructor, were taught how to diagnose problems with their bike, fix common problems, replace cables and brake pads and were able to adjust gears. All the young people were awarded a Velotech blue award in bike maintenance and this along with their Bike Bank packs were awarded by the local Councillor.
