USEFUL INFORMATION

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

We have a purpose built teaching workshop ready for your course. This is equipped with all that is needed to facilitate all aspects of the syllabus. We can also supply all PPE for you including workshop aprons, gloves and barrier cream. We also supply all consumables needed to coach and assess you through the process.

However, we do not carry a stock of components with which to service your own bike. We aim to work on bikes supplied by us. These bikes will enable us to work through all the key principles and systems required. For Velotech Gold/Platinum it may be interesting to bring along a bike with any unusual components on it for the purposes of discussion (this is NOT essential)
