Bike Maintenance Clinic
Your bicycle doesn’t run on leg power alone. You can learn to keep it in tip-top shape and out of the shop with proper bike maintenance. Bikes are actually pretty simple machines once you get to know them.
In this clinic, Rick Forrest will teach you how to perform basic adjustments and maintain your machine.
No need to bring your bike but feel free to if you wish. You may get some insight on why it's making funny noises or not shifting properly and learn how to make adjustments yourself.
In order to attend, you must be registered.
It is free for members, $10 for non members.
