Bikes and coffee with MEC!

Join us every Sunday morning for a freshly brewed coffee and Bike Maintenance 201 Clinic from 9:30-11:00am*

These courses are designed for those wanting to learn how to work on their own bike, and focuses on one of four topics per clinic: Drivetrain, Derailleurs, Brakes, or Wheel Truing (sessions are held on a rotating basis). 

Please note that all of our 201 clinics are only $20, and are limited to 8 people*.

*Wheel truing clinic is from 9:30-11:30am, and is limited to 4 people.

Brake Adjustment & Replacement

This course will teach you:

  • the difference between brake types;
  • how to change the pads and adjust the position on rim brakes;
  • how to change and maintain the pads on disc brakes;
  • how to change the cable and housing for rim brakes;
  • how to determine when your bike needs to be taken in for servicing.

This is a knowledge based clinic, and we will provide you with all of the materials you might need. Come with your questions and a sense of adventure. 

Bringing your own bike is not necessary; there will be one available for demonstrations. 

Help us stay green - bring your own coffee mug and we'll provide the rest!

Please meet at the MEC bike patio (red dragon) for entrance to the store as this clinic is held afterhours.


We love to offer great value with our programming, but can't offer refunds on our clinics. Please see our refund policy here.
