As kids, we all spent a lot of time on our bikes. One that we have never forgotten in Cruisefix is the first time that someone showed us how to pump up our tyre, how to fix a puncture and how to oil a chain. It is simple maintenance training that can enable us to keep our bikes on the road and stop them from falling apart. Our instructors have worked with Foroige, The catholic Youth council, the Garda Youth Diversion Projects and many more youth educational groups and facilities.
We believe in giving back to the community. We offer a high quality unique service to youth groups of Ireland at discounted rates allowing organisers to provide the local community/youth group with some training on basic bicycle mechanics.
From the basics of how to remove a wheel to learning how to replace a brake pad. Our staff are professionally trained in bicycle mechanics and have a passion for bikes which they wish to pass onto others.
We are happy to accommodate all group sizes and ages. We provide the training, tools, the knowledge and even the bikes if required.
What does the course entail:
• Knowing your bike/understanding the parts

We are here to tailor a course to suit your need. Classes can be carried out in the morning, evening and weekends as well and hourly, weekly and daily bookings. Our group facilitation and training package can be adjusted to suit every group size. However, we recommend groups between 6-10 participants. We recommend keeping the groups within these sizes as we want to teach you as much and possible with the time that we have.
