Bring Your Own Bike - Basic Bicycle Maintenance

Due to popular demand, and allowing participants some time to ride the beautoful local scenery, we now run our basic maintenance courses over a two day weekend. This course is an introduction to cycle maintenance for complete beginners.

Hugely popular courses that Cycle Systems regularly leads at its state of the art Academy at Seale Hayne in Newton Abbot, this is the place to begin if you would like a small taster of what it takes to become a bike mechanic, or if you would like to gain the basic knowledge you will need to both keep your bicycle running more smoothly and for longer, or to get yourself home in an emergency should you need to.

Candidates are encouraged to bring and work on their own bike for this course as the aim is for them to empower themselves to repair their own cycle.

If you would like to do a one day only and have a group booking please call Sean on 07726 921002 to discuss.


Complete beginners can attend this course.


The courses generally run over a Saturday and Sunday.



  • Tyres tubes and punctures
  • Brakes
  • Gear System
  • Bearings

All the above is covered. This syllabus will give you a greater level of understanding and more time to practice. You would also have the weekend to enjoy Seale Hayne and its stunning surrounds.

Group courses can also be run off site – Cycle Systems has provided basic courses for prisons, schools, public bodies and private corporates. For more information, please call the office on 07726 921002
