8 months into our new membership scheme and we are floored by the response. There are already 180 members! So we're introducing two tiers of membership now, just in time for 2020. Three levels are:
What's the difference between the three?
I Like To Watch: For £35/year, you get access to our Online Class Library (see below for details)
Friends with Benefits: For £55/year you get six (6) hours of Peak** drop-in time (worth £84) and Unlimited Off-Peak** drop-in time, plus I Like To Watch online library access
Special Relationship: For £85/year you get twelve (12) hours of Peak** drop-in time (worth £168) and Unlimited Off-Peak** drop-in time, plus I Like To Watch online library access
COVID19 forced us to move our classes online, and we have now amassed enough how-to videos to warrant a secret Vimeo collection - BEHOLD: the LBK online class library!
MARVEL at the breadth of content!
GRIMACE at the 2 hour class length! (that subsequently became 1 hour)
ENQUIRE as to how you can watch!
Yes friends, we have videos now, and for the low low price of £35/year, you can join the library as an "I Like To Watch” member and have access to your heart’s content. Videos will be added every week (Vimeo limit how many uploads I can make on their entry level plan.)
Classes include: The Road to Paris Brest Paris, How to Paint a Bike, How Gears Work, How to Index a Rear Mech, How to Clean Your Chain, How to Change Your Chain, Bare Minimum Maintenance, How to Buy a 2nd Hand Bike, Caring for Disc Brakes at Home, The Bike Whisperer (what do all those sounds mean?), and Painless Puncture Repair. (note that not all of these are up yet thanks to Vimeo’s rules). More classes will be added as the weeks (and months) go on.
Add £3.30 to get a real live plastic membership card. Makes a great gift! (You don't have to get an IRL plastic card, we'll keep track of your bits on our end.) If you order a card, it will take up to 2 weeks to arrive at your doorstep, as they are personalised!
DIY Workshop Memberships - these have been paused for the duration and will restart when we reopen
We see so many bikes come in that need £200-300 pounds of work, and the shock on people's faces is painful to see. Your investment is a great reminder for you to take care of your beloved, and you end up saving loads of dosh when you do regular maintenance. It's a win-win sitch, amirite?
Your membership must be used within the year of joining and will expire at the end! When you renew, you get another 6 or 12 hours of drop in time, depending on which tier you join. Hours not used in your previous year cannot be carried over. Membership starts the date of purchase.
Join online here via Member Mojo. Member Mojo will be looking after your membership, and will send you a reminder when you need to renew (hooray! The machines are taking over!)
Once you join, your name will be sent to our database, and when you come in you can add you to name old school progress chart poster in LBK1 for your 6/12 drop in hours (you get a star for each half hour you use!)
