Cycle Maintenance

We have run the professional cycle maintenance training centre for the South East since 2003 with well paid, experienced staff offering the highest quality instruction, unlike free or cheaper courses. We cover courses for all abilities and welcome beginners, women cyclists and those with disabilities. We charge £115 for one day, £105 for the second, and £95 for the third to encourage you to take all three ‘levels’, total £315 for three whole days tuition.

Those wishing to advance to the highest level may wish to take our popular Protech 4 Certificate Course with two extra days of advanced bike mechanics having completed our first three ‘levels’. Total cost for all five days is £825 or £725 if taken with one other.

Our bike maintenance group training days run on Saturdays from 12 midday to 6:00pm at our workshop at –
St Mary’s Church Hall,
61 St James’s Street,
Kemp Town, Brighton BN2 1PA
