Do you know how to keep your bicycle in tip-top shape by doing regular maintenance, preventative measures, and the occasional on-the-road quick fix? All types of bikers can benefit from this class - commuter, weekend bike rider, or the occasional bike rider – your bike still needs to have certain maintenance tasks done to ensure a safe ride and to prevent future problems. Most basic maintenance and repairs can be done by YOU once you learn how. Save yourself money and time. In this class we will cover: Changing a flat tire – how to replace the tube, using patch kits and avoiding your next flat. Brakes - how to trouble-shoot brake problems and hands-on brake cable adjustments. Chains - learn the importance of cleaning and lubricating your chain – and how to do it yourself. The instructor is a long-time member of the Stanislaus County Bicycle Club. He will also share maps of the 36 miles of local bike trails and rules of the road for safety and courtesy that should be used by cyclists of all ages.
