Build Your Own Bike

Build Your Own Bike is a course for pre-formed groups of up to six participants where they build a brand new bike starting with a bare frame, ending with a fully-built mountain bike that each participant gets to keep.

The course is run as 16 hours workshop time, building the bikes in the Bike Station's fully-equipped training workshop. This can be two hours, one day a week for 8 weeks, or three afternoons in the same week, or whatever timing best suits the group's needs.

The course includes one full day's mountain biking at Glentress Forest mountain bike centre near Peebles under the supervision of qualified mountain bike leaders. At the completion of the course, the Bike Station arranges an afternoon event of either cycling the finished bikes back to your group's location (where suitable, and using local cycle paths) or a Northshore event.

Typical Build Your Own Bike Courses are for six participants, and include the new bikes and the trip to Glentress etc. Contact Ruairidh ruairidh@thebikestation.org.uk for more information and costs.
