Professional tips for mountain bike maintenance vol. 2 – training at Kontiolahti Outdoor

The places for the first mountain bike maintenance course in October were reserved in less than a day. A new opportunity for a guided ride on your own bike will be organized on December 14.

At the end of October, a one-night training was organized at the Kontiolahti Biathlon Stadium for those interested in basic mountain bike maintenance. The participants were able to service their own bike with the guidance of professionals.

At that time, the ten places that were available were reserved in less than a day.

— Due to the assumed strong demand, we will organize a second course in mid-December with the same, already tested model, says Kontiolahti Outdoor CEO Kimmo Turunen.

— During the first course, it became very clear that there was a demand for this kind of informal encounter with bike maintenance professionals. The participants probably asked more than 50 questions in a couple of hours, says Turunen.

Professionals on the job

Two trainers from Iikan Pyoravarikko will be present at the evening's training. The training is aimed at enthusiasts who want certainty and tips on how to keep their own bike clean and how to maintain it themselves.
