Come to the Appalachian Mountain Club Bike Repair and Information Workshop to improve your bike knowledge and ride preparedness! It is worthwhile for both new and experienced riders wanting more information and more confidence on the road and trail. Matters addressed include:
• types of bikes
• clothing and equipment
• riding technique
Concepts and repairs will be discussed and demonstrated at four stations: basic bike, general maintenance, flat tires, and brakes and derailleurs. Attend all four stations. Receive an extensive handout to take home. During lunch discuss with the instructors topics such as touring, safety, bike accessories, bike clothing, what to carry with you on a ride, finding bike routes, and where to shop.
