The course is set over 10 days. 

You’ll learn from our experienced instructor who will guide you through a mix of demonstrations and practical exercises.

Went above and beyond to teach us well. Oozing with information & enthusiasm. Best trainer I’ve come across in a while.

Great instructor. A great communicator who explained and demonstrated everything very clearly. Always willing to help and spend 1:1 time with the students. Excellent.

Meet your instructor 


Ross has always loved cycling but started doing work on his own bike just before lockdown. His skills just grew from there. 

He’s now been a bike mechanic for four years and has had lots of experience training bike shop employees, army cadets and university students. 

Ross enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience so others can enjoy fixing bikes themselves. He is a hands-on kind of trainer. He prefers to demonstrate and then let the trainees try for themselves. 

Ross has 4 bikes including a Boardman gravel bike, a fixie and a hardtail that’s a mix-up of lots of different parts. His favourite at the moment is his Boardman Full Suspension mountain bike. One of his favourite trails is one of the world class 7 Stanes mountain biking trails at Mabie Forest in Dumfries.
