The topics addressed in the clinic will be: Basic bike anatomy, route finding, traffic safety, bike fit, tools etc to carry, ABC quick check and fix a flat.
This clinic will be one hour in duration and would be followed by an hour of open shop time during which students could work on their own bikes. Please register online first under the clinics tab
Through out the school year, the UMC and Folsom bike stations are open Mon-Fri, 9:00-5:00 to help keep your bike in working order.
Bike station mechanics are unable to work on bikes that have not been registered. Be sure to register your bike. We will happily register your bike at either station for no charge during normal business hours.
