Home Care for Your Bike
Led by Sherry Adams
Registration is open - 11 participants maximum
WOMEN ONLY CLASS
In response to requests, we're offering this class
in the women only format
In this class we’ll go through the whole bike together, cleaning it off, and getting to know it better. Checking your bike over regularly is key to safety as you’ll catch problems before they become unsafe. It’ll also reduce the chances you’ll be stuck on the side of the road with a mechanical problem that can’t be repaired road side.
I will start by demonstrating and answering questions, then you will be practicing on your own bike with help. No previous mechanical experience required. I’ll share with you my bike check routine between rides. I’ll go over the things you should take a look at, indicators of problems, and the basic up-keep that all bike riders should be doing. I’ll share my check off list. I will not be going over how to do any of the repairs, rather what to look for so you’ll know repairs are needed.
Location: In Santa Rosa, exact location will be sent to participants when you sign up for the class.
What to bring: Bring your bicycle (if you cannot bring a bike, you can pair up with someone else - a few people will need to pair up anyways). Bring a rag, come prepared to get dirty. If you have tools are welcome to bring them.
“I'd very much appreciate more classes from Sherry . This class really helped "de-mystify" basic bike issues for many of us.“
“Sheri did a phenomenal job! She successfully covered a lot of material efficiently and effectively in the two-hour period.”
“The thorough inspection of the condition of the bicycle was presented clearly and the examples of what to look for gave substance to the class. Well Done. “
Who should take this clinic?
“anyone riding a bike and wanting to know what basic bike maintenance they can do to prevent bike breakdowns and identify when bigger repairs are needed”
