Mechanics Course | Pedal Power Cycles
THE NEXT BLOCK OF TRAINING WILL START IN OCTOBER - DATE TO BE ARRANGED SOON
We have been asked repeatedly over the last few years to provide a simple mechanics course that enables enthusiast and novice alike to tackle everyday maintenance jobs with confidence.
These courses will be held at the stunning workshop facilities of our Ipswich store. Our intention is to provide an enjoyable and relaxed environment for you to learn useful skills that will save you time and money not to mention impress your friends!
Numbers will be restricted to six clients per day to ensure that enough time will be given to each area covered and the day will end with a question and answers session. Please note: Should we have less than three clients we will have to cancel the course and transfer your place to a future course or issue you a refund.
