Instructor: Michael Clark
Bike Clinic is intended for everyone! Seriously. Lycra-clad speedracer? Dirty cut-offs retrogrouch? Sweet. First, you will have to grin and bear some basic safety instructions and rules of the road, but then we ride. We'll pedal to a local custom frame builder for a facility tour. We'll pedal to a shop to learn about working on our bikes. We'll pedal to a local brewery to learn about how bikes have impacted their business. We'll pedal to farmers markets. We'll get to talk to long-distance touring riders about their experiences. We'll even pedal around just to pedal around. It is certainly intended to be a fluid experience, so plan on bringing your own ideas of what you want to do. Your hands will get dirty from working on your bike, and you'll get a bit sweaty, but you'll love it. If you don't have a bike, we'll find one for you. Too cool to wear a helmet? Don't sign up. Otherwise, I look forward to riding with you!
