Basic Bicycle Maintenance Manual
If you can’t make it to one of our courses, but still want to try some home maintenance, have a look at the basic bicycle maintenance manual provided free from the London Cyclist.
Cycle Maintenance Workshops
Some local borough cycling groups run cycle maintenance workshops. These are often volunteer-led, and can offer you advice and help to maintain your own cycle:
- Cycle Islington sometimes run maintenance workshops
- Hackney Bike Workshop (three evenings a month)
- Kentish Town Bike Workshop (first Monday of the month)
Note: These are not run by or affiliated to Islington Council
