AMC Bike Repair and Information Workshop

Is everyone looking forward to getting together again and riding? It's time to think spring, and that's means a bicycle workshop to prepare us for the many planned rides ahead. The Bicycling committee of the AMC (Appalachian Mountain Club), which I am a member of, is hosting its annual pre-season workshop, and all are invited.

The workshop will cover a number of topics, including

• Bicycle Basics

• General Maintenance

• Flat Tire Repair

• Brakes and Derailleurs

The workshop will be in a rotating format, with each participant attending four stations in groups during the day. Lunch is included for all participants, and everyone will receive a handout on the topics covered to take home at the end of the day.

The price at the door is $40 per person. There is a discount for advance registration...so sign up! The prices are:

$30 for AMC members 18+

$35 for non-AMC members 18+

$20 for AMC members 12-18

$25 for non-AMC members 12-18

$35 for non-AMC members 

If you attend, plan to bring the following items:

• The front tire from your bike

• Tire irons

• Air pump

FOR THIS EVENT, DO NOT CONFIRM ATTENDANCE THROUGH 'MEETUP'. YOU NEED TO REGISTER THROUGH THE AMC WEB SITE: http://www.amcboston.org/bicycle/workshop/reg.php

The church is located in the center of Concord, at the corner of Walden Street and Hubbard Street. Parking is available on Hubbard Street and the parking lot on Walden Street. Enter the church at the back of the building.

    Hi Janet,

    We had great response this time (partly thanks to meetups!) but it's a big deal to get the space and, especially, get all the volunteers to give up a Spring Saturday so I doubt we'll have another this season. REI has some repair workshops too...

      Thanks, Valerie. I will look into that. I ride my bike all of the time - mostly at home or along the NH seacoast on my own, and occasionally with my hiking groups. I really should know how to do repairs, especially if I'll be riding on my own far from home.

    I wish I could attend. This is exactly what I need - and to have it nearby and on a Saturday is perfect. Sadly, though, I need to get my taxes done on Saturday. Will this be offered again anytime soon? I've been riding my bike virtually every day after work this past week or so. So glad biking season is back!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
