WANT TO START CYCLING?!

As you are aware, the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve, and further restrictions on events and gatherings have been instituted by provincial governments across the country. The health and safety of our participants, staff and partners is our top priority. At this time, several health agencies are recommending the cancellation of large gatherings and the practice of social distancing.  We are taking precautionary steps to lessen the public health risk associated with COVID-19 in Canada and are cancelling MEC clinics and events until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but hope you understand why we came to this decision.

Registered participants who have paid for registration will have entry fees refunded. 

If you’re only going to learn one bike repair skill, learn how to fix a flat tire. After this clinic, you’ll be totally prepared to repair a flat (and maybe save the day for another cyclist who needs a hand).

Skill level: beginner

Format: hands-on, small group class

YOU'LL LEARN

  • What causes flat tires (there are a few things)
  • How to remove a bike wheel, front and rear
  • What kind of bike tube to choose
  • How to change a bike tube or patch a bike tube
  • … and how to put a bike back together again

IMPORTANT NOTES

Please leave your own bike at home, where you can practice your new skills on it later. We’ll use demo bikes and gear in class to show you how it’s done.


WHO IS TEACHING THE CLINIC?

Our clinics are taught by friendly MEC staffers who are ready to answer any questions and share all the stuff they love about being outside. Everyone’s welcome!
