Looking after your bike

Cycle maintenance courses

A limited number of basic maintenance courses are now available from Bikespace. These courses would normally cost £125 but we're able to offer them free of charge thanks to our successful bid to the DfT's Access Fund supporting the Plymotion programme. If you are interested to book a place on the course please contact Bikespace directly via email workshop@bikespace.org.uk or call 01752 500211.

Open workshop evenings

Look after your bike at one of our free open workshop evenings where we have:

  • mechanics on hand for advice
  • work stands and benches
  • specialist tools
  • parts available to buy
  • free drinks and biscuits!

Workshops run between 6pm and 9pm on the first Wednesday of every month. It's a great chance to meet other cyclists and there's no need to book.

For more information about the workshop visit Bikespace or call 01752 500211.
