On Saturday, September 10th, Bike Fun is hosting a Basic Bicycle Maintenance class. We’ll be outside and will cover the basics of home bicycle maintenance, as well as provide time to answer all the questions you may have about bicycle maintenance. If you have a bicycle and bring it, we’ll also fill out your very own Bicycle Information Sheet.
This course is for anyone 7-12 years of age (and their parent or caregiver!!) who wants to learn more about taking good care of a bicycle. It will cover the following topics:
- How to fix a flat
- How to properly inflate your tires
- How to clean a chain and diagnose chain wear; and
- How to make basic brake adjustments.
Parents and caregivers are welcome to stay and watch. Bicycles can be provided for those who would like to attend but don’t have their own bicycle yet. Please bring a water bottle/hydration and a snack! Bike Fun will have limited snacks available.
Each student wil receive their own bicycle cleaner, tire levers, and chain lubricant so they can keep that bike rolling at home.
