Women's Fix-a-Flat & Basic Maintenance Clinic

1st Monday of each month at 7-8pM, no sign up required

We decided to do this women’s bike maintenance class because changing a flat is not only a useful skill but it’s also a safety issue. If you can change a flat yourself, you don’t have to be stuck away from home, or rely on the kindness of stranger to help you out.

This class covers:

  • How to change a flat
  • Cleaning and lubricating your chain
  • Cleaning your bike
  • Tips to keep from getting flats
  • Items you need to change a flat when you are away from home

Details:

  • Only $5 or $5 in purchases (the cost of a pair of tire levers  )
  • You can bring your own bike to practice on if you wish!
  • No previous mechanical skill required
