What our students are saying:

"I was very happy with the content of the course and the way John taught it. He was clearly knowledgeable and gave us a lot of detail about our bikes that was interesting and useful. By the end of the course I had an understanding of my bike and how to care for it that I hadn’t had before. It was enjoyable working on bikes with other bike enthusiasts."John
