Bike Workshops 2017 – What/where/when’d you like?

Hi UHN Cyclists!

We have 2 bike sessions to offer this year. To make them count, let us know the right session at the right place at the right time for you. I have 3 super fast polls below to get the what/where/when. Full descriptions of the sessions are below the polls. Polls close May 19.


Basic Bicycle Repair Clinic

(Outside with bike, Interactive): Learn about day-to-day care of your bicycle (hands-on). Topics include: how to perform a safety check, how to pump your tires, how to tighten your brakes, how to oil your chain, and how to ensure that your bike is the right fit for you.

Bicycle Flat Tire Repair Clinic

(Outside with bike, Interactive): Learn how to fix a flat bike tire using a patch kit, by practising on one of our demo bike wheels. Optional: bring your bike to learn tips for removing your wheels; we will not actually remove your bike’s wheels for the clinic.

Advanced Bicycle Repair Clinic

Cycling in All Weather Conditions
