Kid's Bike Maintenance Class

Bike maintenance class for 12-16 year olds who want to learn how to look after their bike.

During the class, you'll learn:
How to remove and refit a wheel and tyre, so you can fix a puncture
How to tighten the brakes
How to stop the brake blocks rubbing when they're off and squealing when they're on
How to adjust the gears so they accurately index (ie move the chain onto the next cog with each click of the lever)

Tools and work stands are provided but please bring along your bike. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults go free!

Great Scot: Free Walking Tour of Old Aberdeen

For over five hundred years, Old Aberdeen has been one of the great centres of learning in the North of Scotland. There can be no better place to celebrate Aberdeen's greatest thinkers, scientists, explorers, inventors, writers and gardeners (yes, we do mean gardeners). We'll explore the hidden places in this historic burgh, to tell the stories of some great Scots whose achievements did not get the recognition they deserved.
