MK Council Bike Maintenance Courses

In partnership with Milton Keynes Council MBRS have delivered over 12, one day bike maintenance courses for novices and enthusiasts alike. The best bit… They were free!!

Bring your bike to our purpose built workshop in Bletchley. Work on your bike with either our tools or yours.

Learn how to perform the following tasks on your bike…

  • Fixing punctures, tyres and tubes
  • Brake tuning and adjustments
  • Gear tuning and adjustments
  • Cleaning and Maintenance
  • Trail and road side fixes

Courses run from 10am till 4pm.

We’re sorry to say the above course date concludes the FREE courses. Thank you to all those attended and thank you for overwhelmingly positive response.  A Massive thank you to Milton Keynes Council who kindly funded the project to promote cycling, sustainable travel and healthy lifestyles.

HOWEVER !!….  we’re aware many more folks would have liked to attend so here are some more dates through to the end of the year…

September 23rd.      FULL

October 14th.            5 Places left

November 18th.        5 Places left

December 16th.        5 Places left


HOWEVER !!We can no longer offer the courses for Free.  But we feel that a reasonable price for the course is £80 bearing in mind that you will learn the skills to maintain your bikes, and keep them running in tip top condition. So you’ll save more than the cost of the course over the years to come.  You will also receive a Bike Lubrication Kit and some park tools goodies during the course included in the cost.
