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. 

After this clinic, you'll know the basics of bike maintenance and be totally prepared to repair a flat (and maybe save the day for another cyclist who needs a hand).

Skill level: beginner

YOU’LL LEARN

  • Bike maintenance basics
  • 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
  • When to take your bike to the repair shop

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.

WHO'S TEACHING THE CLINIC?

Our beginner bike clinics are taught by friendly MEC staffers who are ready to answer any of your questions.
