Excellent experience - doubled, at least, my understanding of how the brakes and gears on my bike work and what I can do myself to keep them working well.
Very clear demonstrations with lots of time to ask questions and take on new information.
Really pleased with the morning spent on this.
Brilliant that no question was considered too daft
Exactly what was required!
I would highly recommend this course for those with limited or no experience of the content.
Perfect for my level of knowledge. Very clear instruction. Nice friendly place.
The trainer was obviously incredibly knowledgeable but also happy to explain and share his knowledge at our pace.
