Bike Maintenance 201 is designed for the more advanced cyclist who wants to learn how to work hands on with a bike provided by MEC.Our advanced, 201 clinics are held twice a month.
 
All clinics are led by trained mechanics, and the 201 clinics are hands-on clinics led by one of our senior mechanics, giving you a small class size to really get involved and learn a new skill. 
 
Bike Maintenance 101 is a suggested prerequisite to this intermediate clinic.
