West Side Springtime Spruce-Up

I wanted to host an event for novices and those who feel they're a bit "rusty" when it comes to bicycling or basic maintenance. It's part instruction, part social ride.

We'll meet at the parking lot of the Richland Library at 11am. Here's the plan: - tutorial on changing tires, patching flats, and replacing inner tubes. - brief tutorial on checking brakes - ride around the nearby neighborhood (46th - Murphy Road corridor, I guess) or another suggested route for like an hour - regroup at the library parking lot, and pick up coffee & pastries or a light lunch afterward

So if you feel like grabbing a refresher course on bike maintenance and basic repairs, then this is the event for you.

I will have tools. You will need a bicycle (but of course!), and optional replacement inner tube, and optional patch kit.

Anyone else want to assist with demonstrating repairs? Speak up now, eh? :D

If this goes well, I'd like to host another one at Shelby Bottoms a couple of weeks later, where we'll cruise around the greenway and the airstrip.

Thanks for reading!

    Due to lack of interest, I'd like to cancel this meetup. Maybe next time (or maybe closer to the east side).

    Hello Steve, sounds like a great idea. Thanks for not making this at the crack of dawn. I will come on out with a spare bike and tools to work on and assist.

    Sounds like a plan Steve - can't make this week but will try to get to Shelby next time around. I'm not "rusty", but a training with hands on would be very cool.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
