Workshops

Ever fancied building your own adventure cycling wheelset? Over the course of 3 workshops throughout the weekend, you will learn to build a wheelset with components of your choice from lacing all the way to trueing. At the end of the festival, you get to ride away on a set of wheels you built yourself.

Ghyllside Cycles are working on a landing page with spoke, rim and hub options which you can order from their site. They will bring these to the event together with wheel building jigs and years of wheelbuilding expertise.

During the first session, you will lace both wheels before tightening the spokes during the second workshop. The final workshop is where the fun really starts - trueing the wheel and making sure it is properly dished.

Whilst bragging rights of having built your own set of wheels will be a big draw to this workshop in its own right, having a good understanding of lacing and trueing of wheels is invaluable when you're well off the beaten track and your wheel gives up beneath you.

Due to the intensive level of tuition required to create a strong wheelset, numbers will be very limited (max. 8 people) so if you would like to attend the workshop get your parts ordered from their site as soon as possible.

This workshop will cost £10 to take part plus the cost of components.
