Welcome to Yorkshire and CTC to deliver Tour de France legacy

8 May 2014
Cycle maintenance training will take place at CTC's Centre of Excellence in Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire. The courses will be delivered at both beginner and advanced level and are being subsidised through The Skills Enhancement Fund.
CTC are partners in Cycle Yorkshire - the Tour de France Yorkshire legacy

The workshops will allow members of the public and small businesses to become more confident in maintaining and adjusting their bikes, and will inspire course attendees to cycle more, meeting the long-term aims of both organisations.

The Beginners' Workshop covers ride-based repairs and the pre-ride checks every rider should know, using essential trail tools.

Young people get their hands dirty at Pages Park Youth Scheme

Pages Park Youth Scheme is run every week in Leighton Buzzard. Discover how volunteers are providing activities for young people.
Pages Park Youth Scheme

Pages Park Youth Scheme launched as a Bike Club on Wednesday 20 October 2010 with bike maintenance workshops. The workshops give young people the opportunity to fix their bikes, as many of the bikes were not road worthy condition.

The workshops provided by Sam Darling of MBRS UK Ltd are deliberately hands-on, giving the young people practical skills needed to regularly maintain their bikes and fix common problems they might face like punctures and brake failures.
