Our bike maintenance clinics are aimed at the “Beginner” cyclist.
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
Each clinic runs 2 hours and is limited to 12 participants.
All clinics will be held outdoors (if it is raining, the clinic will move indoors).
Bring something to eat and drink.
Pave your way to becoming more confident and technically savvy on your bike!
