Ham Cycle Workshop
Cycle expert Jonathon Rowland from The Turning Hub will be on hand to show you how to maintain and repair your bike. Learn how to use specialist tools under the supervision of a qualified mechanic to stop the squeaks, get rid of the grinding, repair punctures, stop the softness in your tyres and much more. Everybody is welcome to come along to learn or just to watch.
Maintenance courses are available from beginners to intermediate and beyond.
Don’t have a bike but want to ride? Work on one of our donated bikes, fix it up and then when it works you can take it away for yourself.
