Maintenance Clinic Announced

Saturday, April 11, 2015
Ridgewood Library
9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
BikeMaintenanceIs your bicycle covered with dust from a winter of inactivity? Or grimy from a winter of frigid riding?
Either way come to this year’s Maintenance Clinic where you will learn how to shine it up and keep it running smoothly for the 2015 cycling season and beyond. The clinic will prepare you for when a tire has gone flat; a spoke has broken, a derailleur is skipping, or if your chain breaks. Attend this clinic, and learn what to do when disaster strikes. Attending this clinic could mean the difference between a long walk home following a mechanical disaster, or experiencing only the minor inconvenience of a roadside repair before getting back on your way.

Join Instructor, Bob Reich who will teach you how to care for your bike and overcome a variety of mechanical misfortunes. He will de-mystify putting a tool to your bicycle, learn what to check before you ride, what to carry with you when you ride, and how to change a tire. He will discuss repairs and maintenance, demonstrate various tools and how to make simple, routine adjustments to your bicycle.

The clinic will be held at the Ridgewood Public Library on Saturday, April 11th, between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The registration fee is $15.00 payable on arrival. During the clinic, light refreshments will be served. A confirmed reservation is required. Seating is limited to those with a reservation. This event is waitlisted every year, so to guarantee a spot do not delay in making your reservation. To reserve your place, call or email Bob Reich ([email protected]), at 973-633-0493 after 7:00 p.m., calls accepted until 10:00 p.m.
