Learn How to Fix a Flat
Feeling a little deflated? Come and learn about the 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.
|Basic Bike Maintenance||3/25/20||6:00 - 8:00 p.m.|
|Basic Bike Maintenance||4/22/20||6:00 - 8:00 p.m.|
Learn to Ride!
Ever wanted to learn how to ride a bike? Did you learn as a kid but haven't ridden in years? The OAP's friendly bike trip leaders are here to increase your confidence on two wheels. This clinic is for those who need help with balance, shifting and general bicycle riding skills - no experience is encouraged. Bikes, helmets and instruction are provided. After completion of this clinic, participants are eligible for a FREE weekend rental of an OAP mountain or road bike package to implement their new skills.
No Fall Dates. Spring Sessions TBA
