Bike repair course in Letchworth

Transition Town Letchworth's next Bicycle Maintenance Course will be starting on Monday 17th March at 7.30pm. Hopefully by then we can call it Spring and get out on our bikes more!

It will last for 5 Mondays, at Norton Methodist Hall, North Ave. SG6 1AY (where it joins Common View). Cost £20 to cover costs, concessions available.

These courses are in their 4th year and have been very well received by participants.

The teacher Frank tends to have a contagious enthusiasm about all things cycling and imparts useful knowledge which can lead to greater two-wheeled freedom!

As usual it will start with basic adjustment to make riding more comfortable and progress onto brakes, gears and tyres at a pace tailored to suit the group and is a very enjoyable way to spend a Monday evening. To book a place please email Rosie on
