Learn to Fix Bikes

**Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic certain courses are running at limited capacity and with less availability**

Learning to fix your own bike is an essential skill for any cyclist. Especially if you are planning to take advantage of the beautiful scenery surrounding St Andrews and go on rides outside of town. Luckily Bike Pool is here to help! Not only do we provide training and courses up to a professional standard, we also offer the opportunity to hone your skills and help others at the same time.

How to get involved

There are several different courses available depending on your current level of experience and requirements. Read on to find out which one suits you!

Basic Cycle Maintenance Course – £15

This course covers everything you need to know for your individual needs. Here we cover puncture repair, simple preventative maintenance and how to care for your bike. To book and for more information please contact transition@st-andrews.ac.uk.

Velotech Qualifications

Velotech qualifications are more costly and are reserved for the dedicated volunteers. They take wannabe mechanics up to a professional standard with industry recognized qualifications. We offer 3 levels – Bronze, Silver and Gold. Find out more information here. We fund a small number of volunteers through the programme each year, with the provision that you use your newfound skills to help others consistently at Bike Pool.
