    Roadside Bike Repair Workshop with Just Ride LA

    Roadside_Bike_Repair.png

    LACBC and Just Ride LA don’t want fear of getting stranded due to a flat tire or mechanical problem to keep you from enjoying a ride to work, to visit friends and family, to go shopping, or to just ride. You don’t need to be a master mechanic to fix a number of problems that could come up during an every day ride. Bring your bike and we'll show you some basic repairs and adjustments that you can do by the side of the road. Colin Bogart, LACBC Education Director and Christian, Just Ride LA mechanic extraordinaire will be your hosts. They’ll cover:

    • ABC Quick check (how to check your bike before you ride)

    • Fixing a flat tire

      • What kinds of flats are there and which ones can you fix?

    • Shifter adjustment

    • Brake adjustment

    • Seat height adjustment

    If you haven’t ridden your bike in a while, we recommend you take your bike to a shop for a tune up before you attend this class. We don’t want you to discover something is wrong that we can’t fix during the workshop.

    Along with your bike, please bring the following items (which you should always carry when you ride)

    • A new tube for your tires

    • Tire levers

    • A patch kit

    • Portable bike pump

    • Bicycle multi-tool

    Attendees will be entered into a raffle for prizes at the end of the workshop.
