Time to get your bike out of storage? Are you ready to hit the roads or the trails? Will you be riding during Bike to Work Week (May 28 – June 3)? Is your bike safe?

The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department is offering two great bike repair and maintenance sessions on April 18 and April 25 from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. to help get you ready for the road or trail.

The first session covers a pre-ride check; how to clean and lubricate your bike; minor maintenance and how to repair a flat.

The second session shows you how to deal with problems while out on a ride – like how to fix a flat when you’re out of patches.

The cost is only $10 per session. You can attend one or both.

The classes are taught by Dan Clements at Outdoor Addictions (1980 Island Highway). Clements has more than 20 years experience as a bike mechanic. This class is ideal for ages 14 and up.

Learn how to make your ride a safe one. Space is limited, so please register in advance at either the Sportsplex or the Community Centre.
