There is a fantastic range of events that take place in and around Ullswater each year that celebrate the rich diversity, local history, culture and beauty of the area. Highlights include the world famous Marmalade Festival, the popular Winter Droving, Ullswater Walking Festival or Ullswater’s very own Daff Fest. Or perhaps one of the many sporting events, such as the Ullswater Triathlon or the Epic Lakes Swim is more your cup of tea?

Hands On Strip & Build a Bike Day at Quirky Workshops

14th April 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Build and strip a bike

Starting from the very beginning with the basic parts of a bike, you will learn all about bike types and their wheels, then moving onto gears, types of brakes, what to look for regarding any servicing needs  and of course, how to mend the dreaded puncture/ change an inner tube.  This includes removing and replacing the back wheel.  By the end you’ll be raring to ride off into the sunset without worrying ‘what if I get a puncture?’!   Your bikes should be thoroughly cleaned before you arrive.

Bikes should be in good working order without seized parts but possibly in need of a general service.

Please note: It is not possible to work on bikes with Campagnolo group sets as the tools required are quite different.
