Duration and Format

We teach this course either 1:1 or 2:1, full time in 10 days over 2 consecutive weeks Monday – Friday, then Monday - Friday.

Syllabus

This is the most comprehensive course offered at The Bicycle Academy, with the first 4 days comprised of a series of skills masterclasses followed by 6 days spent building your very own frame and forks. You’ll learn every step of the way, actually build a bike for yourself and crucially; you’ll come away with the skills to make more. We won’t skim over details, or do things for you, we’ll teach you properly so that you do a great job to be proud of.
