Bike maintenance is not yet an Olympic sport (!), but some of our volunteers with the West Lothian Bike Library recently undertook Velotech Silver training under the expert instruction of a Cycle Form trainer in our base in Livingston. Cycle Form is a cycling business based in Glasgow who offer accredited Velotech training, which is aligned with the National Qualification Framework. Velotech Awards are industry standard qualifications in bike maintenance.
It means our volunteers are obtaining valuable skills for free and our bike maintenance work in the West Lothian Bike Library is meeting national standards. We hope to take our volunteers all the way to the Gold Velotech Award in due course!
If you’re interested in undertaking Velotech training at any level, get in touch and we’ll keep you posted on the next opportunity.
