Recycles Merseyside

We offer a free course in bicycle maintenance and repair. The course is open to people aged 18-30 who have a learning disability, are unemployed or are an asylum seeker/refugee. As well as learning some new skills, the course involves working on second hand bicycles which, when repaired, are sold in the community to help fund the social-enterprise. The course will usually be completed in 6 weeks based on 2 sessions a week, but we are very flexible on timings and can work with people who are not able to commit to exact times each week or who need more time to pick up the skills.

Reasonably-priced, refurbished bikes are available for sale from Bulky Bob's shop from Monday-Saturday, 9:30-4:30. Kid's bikes start at just £10.

Session Information
A highly practical course that takes you through the basics and into some more advanced tasks for keeping bikes in good working condition. It is broken down into three blocks (basic
intermediate
advanced) so that you can stop if you've reached your capacity and still get a sense of achievement. Great for keeping your own bike (or friends and family's) on the road and running smoothly or even as a way into employment or professional Cycle Mechanic training
