Teach me how to maintain my bike

Over the last couple of months I've been cycling to and from work. My bike is second hand and I'd like to be shown how to maintain it - specifically:

  • how to repair rust damage on the frame
  • how to adjust gears/brakes and identify if parts need replacing
  • how to degrease and regrease the chain, gears etc
  • advice on the best accessories to buy (and where to go) for improving safety and comfort on my commutes
I currently have a Trek T10 hybrid, in case that matters!

Teach me to use a sewing machine

I went to an all-boys school, and so I've never been taught Textiles in any format.

I'm quite creative, though, and would love to learn how to do basic things like:

  • Repair stitching that has come unpicked
  • Turn up hems on a pair of trousers
  • Use a sewing machine to make minor modifications to existing garments
Could you help me?

Help setting up as freelance business

Over the last year, I've been doing a little freelance work (data analysis, creative resource development, writing, social media training).

My freelance work will probably remain a side project for the time being, but I'm interested in how I go about setting myself up as an actual business - or if indeed I need to do this at the moment?

I'd appreciate anyone who can give me a little advice on the basics of setting up as a professional freelancer - bank accounts, tax, branding, marketing etc.

I would like some coving fitted

I have a small area that I would really like finished off with some coving - it's 0.85 x 1.94m.

I'm thinking that for someone who knows whay to do, it should only take around an hour to cut & fit up - does that sound about right?

I would buy the coving & adhesive & paint it when it was all set.

I'm sure my husband could do it, but it's very far down his list of jobs & I don't think it will ever happen!

Thanks for looking.

Mountain Biking Routes

I returned to cycling about 3 years ago and love riding 'off road', but there don't seem to be many interesting trails around Sutton (I've found a few, but there must be more); I'm looking for challenging routes, but not 'mad, scary' ones. Do you know any good trail rides within a half-hour's drive of Sutton? Would you show me where they are and ride them with me so I learn the route? In return, I'll transport you and your bike there and back.
