Bike Maintenance Sessions
The Dr Bike team have been giving some thought to the proposed Bike Maintenance Sessions and have decided on a series of sessions that will follow each of the Peacehaven Dr Bike sessions from June until September.
This creates four sessions and we propose each will be for one hour, commencing at 12:30, allowing a little time to tidy up after the Dr Bike session closes. The following series of maintenance subjects is the current proposal but we are also open to cover particular subjects on request, time permitting;
Saturday 15 June 2019:
General Safety and our standard 20 point checklist.
Saturday 20 July 2019:
Tyres, tubes and punctures.
Saturday 17 August 2019:
Brake maintenance and adjustment.
Saturday 21 September 2019:
Chains, cassettes, detailers and shifters.
Saturday 19 October 2019:
Spare session if required – Subject to be confirmed.
Currently, this leaves Saturday 19 October 2019 as a spare day and a session could be introduced once we know the subject our attendees would like to cover. Beyond that, the Dr bike sessions will come to a close but if we can locate a suitable venue to continue with more sessions we could maybe extend into the Autumn and Winter months. All subject to demand and interest. We can of course re-visit any of the proposed topics in later sessions.
We propose making use of the Dr Bike sessions in Peacehaven as this will give us access to the storage container, the full range of tools and even some club bikes if we need example bikes for the session.
The main focus for these sessions is to help members gain the confidence required to carry out simple maintenance and safety checks on our own bikes. Confident and experienced CSH members, and the Dr Bike team, will be on hand to run the sessions and offer support and guidance to any members attending.
This is a great opportunity to meet some of your fellow club members and riders and become more confident with the simple, day to day maintenance tasks that keep your bike running sweet and ultimately ensure trouble free and enjoyable cycling.
So let us know if you plan on attending any of the sessions (click here) so we can gauge the anticipated numbers. We look forward to seeing you there.
