An introductory bike maintenance class for children ages 5-11.
During the class we will cover:
- naming parts of a bike
- bike safety checks
- how to pump up a bike tyre
- how to repair a puncture
- introduction to using hand tools
- washing and lubricating a bike
- how to test your brakes
- what I have learned today.
This class is about how to look after a healthy bike that isn’t broken. It is not about how to repair a bike that is broken.
Your child should bring their own bike if they can, but if this isn’t possible then don’t worry because we have some children’s bikes that participants can work on in this class.
