OAP Bike Shop Clinic Series

Learn How to Fix a Flat

Feeling a little deflated? Come and learn about common causes of flat tires and how to prevent them. Our bicycle experts will demonstrate how to fix a flat and you'll even have a chance to practice. Feel free to bring your bike or use one of ours. (The OAP does not sell bicycle inner tubes; if you are repairing a flat tire on your bike, please bring the appropriate tube for your bike.)

Basic Bicycle Maintenance

Modern bicycles are simple yet complex machines. But did you know there are plenty of things you can do to keep your ride running smoothly without spending much time, effort, or money? The OAP bike maintenance crew will demonstrate how to clean, lube, and adjust your bike to keep you rolling and avoid costly repairs down the road. No need to bring your bike; just bring your curiosity and questions.

Visit the Bicycle Clinic registration page to sign up for the clinics, up to the day of the clinic. You are also welcome to drop in.
