We highly recommend taking the beginner bike repair and maintenance clinics at MEC before this class.
This is a hands-on clinic, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit of bike grease on.
Please leave your own bike at home, where you can practice your new skills on it later. We’ll provide demo materials and gear in class.
