Free bike maintenance courses on offer

City of Mount Gambier in conjunction with Bike SA will host two free bike maintenance courses on Saturday 3 February 2024. The three hour courses will provide residents with basic and intermediate knowledge on how to fix a flat tyre and other minor bicycle faults.

“Summer is a great time to get on the bike and explore our wonderful city and surrounding region. As people dust off their bike they may need to do some maintenance,” City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer Aaron Izzard said.

The courses will be held in the multi-function room at the Mount Gambier Library with the basic bike care course commencing at 10:00am and the intermediate bike maintenance course from 1:00pm.

The basic course is designed to provide a thorough introduction to maintaining a bike and is planned specifically for those just starting out.

“It aims to provide a better understanding of the working parts of the bike, offering the additional knowledge needed to get out onto the road or trail with extra confidence,” Mr Izzard said.

“During the course participants will learn how to clean and lubricate the major mechanical working groups of a bike and get the inside story on puncture repair.”
