Bike Maintenance Made Easy – August 2nd


Did you know it’s recommended to tune your bike at least twice a year, especially at the beginning of the riding season? With regular maintenance your bike can last years longer and it’s easy to do with tools you probably have at home. Learn the steps professional technicians use to get your bike working as intended. In this workshop you’ll fix a flat, adjust your brakes and gears, and make your bike safer to ride. You’ll learn the anatomy of a bike, how it works, and how to perform common fixes to your own bike. Register now if you never want to walk your bike home again.

Come to our workshop if:

  • You want to ride your bicycle, you want to ride your bike.
