Maintain Your Bike, Maintain Your Sanity, Maintain Distance
Jun 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Maintain Your Bike, Maintain Your Sanity, Maintain Distance

We all know that bicycling is a great way to get around town, keep fit, and reduce your carbon footprint. Especially during this time of quarantine, going on a bike ride is a great way to keep yourself sane by clearing your head (while keeping distance from others). But, along with your sanity, you’ve also got to maintain your bike if you want your ride to go as planned… so we’re here to help you know what to check so you’re ready to roll.

Please join us for a lunchtime virtual workshop to cover how to maintain your bike to keep you riding safe and smooth. Our knowledgeable instructors from MassBike will go through the basics in an hour-long presentation to cover how to diagnose your bike’s ABCs (Air, Brakes, and Chain). You’ll come away with a bit of home-mechanic know-how, so you can check the condition of your bike, and also fix your bike when things start to go awry.

This event is hosted by MassBike, the Dedham Public Library and the Dedham Cycle Club, and all are welcome! Please invite anyone you’re quarantined with.
