LOVE YOUR BIKE. LEARN HOW TO TREAT IT RIGHT.

Join us every Wednesday evening for a Bike Maintenance 101 Clinic from 5:30-6:30pm. 

These courses are designed to go over the basic details to keep your bike in working order, and focuses on one of four topics per clinic: Know Your Bike, Cycle Touring, or Flat Repair (sessions are held on a rotating basis). 

Please note that all of our 101 clinics are only $10, and are limited to 10 people.


Cycle Touring

 This course will teach you:

  • what equipment is needed
  • what to expect on your first cycle tour
  • how to pack for a cycle tour
  • how to perform common, on-the-fly repairs
  • how to train and stay well fed
  • about route planning

This is a knowledge based clinic, and we will provide you with all of the materials you might need. Come with your questions and a sense of adventure. 

Bringing your own bike is not necessary; there will be one available for demonstrations. 

All of our Bike Maintenance clinics meet in the cycling department.
