Roadside Repair

Due to the nature of our maintenance classes (close proximity to others in an indoor environment), masks will be required. 

These classes are done for the season and will resume in February/March of 2023. 

Course Description

Roadside Repair focuses on any major repairs you may need to make to your bike when you are out riding. While we won’t be covering fixing a flat or preventative maintenance we will be looking at:

  • What to keep in your tool kit and why 
  • Chain falling off your cassette or chain rings 
  • Loose bolts and critical bolts
  • Sudden brake rubbing
  • Derailleur failure
  • How to fix a broken chain

Whether you’re a beginner rider or have many miles under your tires, these skills will help you to be more self-sufficient in the case of a breakdown. This is great know-how for anyone looking to feel more confident in leading a group of riders or going on more solo trips.
