Wrenches and Wine: a LIV ladies Tire Changing and Bike Maintenance Clinic
WHAT: Flat tires are a sure way to ruin a ride if one isn’t prepared, or is uncertain of how to take their tire off, change it, and put it back on their bike! This clinic will be geared towards all females looking to tackle the stigma of tire changing, and face it head-on with actual hands-on tire changing! Everyone, yes EVERYONE, will practice changing out a flat tire (on their own bike!) So be prepared to get your hands a little dirty…..all while eating, drinking and socializing with your fellow female riders! We promise you will not find a more appealing setting for learning how to change a tire!
We will also talk about the basics of bike maintenance. For instance, Clean chains = smoother shifting. But how do we clean our chains? Find out on Sunday! 🙂
WHEN: Sunday, May 3rd, 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Spokes Bikes – 69 Danada Sq E, Wheaton, IL 60189. 630-690-2050
THE NITTY GRITTY: Participants in this clinic will need to bring along their bike, and tire changing necessities. Please don’t let this frighten you off! The necessary tire changing items are quite easy, and all items can be purchased right at Spokes the day of the clinic if needed. An email with the basic items needed will be sent out to participants a couple of days in advance.
