Flat Tire Clinic
Getting a flat tire is an inevitable part of cycling. Fixing a flat is simple with basic tools, a little knowledge and plenty of practice. The more you do it, the more routine it will be.
The instructors will provide a demonstration, and then you'll be able to practice changing your own tire, with help from others.
In order to provide personalized attention, group size is limited.
