Bike Maintenance Clinics

Our bike maintenance clinics are geared to all cyclists (new and seasoned). You will learn everything you need to know about the main points of general bike maintenance, practice the skills needed to fix a flat, and gain the confidence needed to keep you riding safely all season long. YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

  • fix a flat
  • pump a tire
  • fix a broken chain
  • make simple adjustments to your brakes and gears

All clinics will be held outdoors (If it is raining, we will move indoors). Bring something to eat and drink. Pave your way to becoming more confident and technically savvy on your bike! For information in French *Please note that Clinics will be delivered in English. We will strive to have a bilingual volunteer at each clinic to assist with French translation.
