Bike Repair and Information Workshop

The AMC Boston Chapter Bicycling Committee will be hosting a Bike Repair and Information Workshop on

Saturday, March 27, 2010

9:45 AM - 3:30 PM

Trinitarian Congregational Church
54 Walden Street
Concord, MA 01742

Directions: Take best route to Concord Center. The church is at corner of Walden St. and Hubbard St., across from the Concord Post Office. Enter the church via the Hubbard St. doors, towards the back of the building. Best parking is on Hubbard St. on the church side, after the meters, and the church’s lot on Walden St.

Come to the 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
* maintenance
* clothing and equipment
* riding technique

Concepts and repairs will be discussed and demonstrated at four stations: basic bike, general maintenance, flat tires, and brakes & 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.

Arrive by 9:45 to sign-in. Bring lunch, the front wheel from your bike (it is easier to remove than the rear; try this well in advance of the workshop if you are unfamiliar with the procedure), tire irons, and a pump to practice fixing flats, but NOT your bike (sorry, space is limited).

Advance registration is recommended. Prices are: $25 for AMC members, $30 for non-members, and $35 at the door for all. To register, mail your check payable to AMC Boston Chapter Bicycling Committee along with e-mail and telephone contact information to Valerie Paul, 85 Fruit St., Ashland MA 01721.
