Important notes

We highly recommend taking the beginner bike repair and maintenance clinics at MEC before this class. This is a hands-on clinic, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit of bike grease on.

Please bring your own bike so you can practice along side our mechanic. Please ensure your bike is in good repair, as bringing a bike that needs a lot of work done will impair you ability to keep up with the speed of the course.

We will be working out of our bike shop, so we ask that all participants wear closed toe shoes for the duration of the clinic. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. 


Who’s teaching the clinic?

Our more advanced bike clinics are taught by experienced MEC bike mechanics, who are ready to answer any of your questions.
