    LACBC and Just Ride LA don’t want you to worry about getting stranded with your bike due to a flat tire or mechanical problem. These things don't have to keep you from enjoying a ride to work, to visit friends and family, to go shopping, or to just ride for fun. 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 V, Just Ride LA mechanic extraordinaire will be your instructors. They’ll cover:

    * Fixing a flat tire
    * What kinds of flats are there and which ones can you fix?
    * Shifter adjustment
    * Brake adjustment

    We recommend that you bring your bike so if you have any questions specific to your bike, we can answer them.

     

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

    Ride Description:

    Join LACBC for Bike Month's Sunday Funday Ride starting and ending at The Wheelhouse in the Arts District. One of our favorite new local shops, The Wheelhouse combines community, coffee, and bikes, and is an active supporter of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition. The route will explore neighborhoods north of Downtown L.A. including the newly opened Los Angeles State Historical Park. Come early for a great cup of coffee. Starting in May, The Wheelhouse will expand their food offerings, so plan to stick around afterwards for a bite to eat and see one of L.A.'s most exciting new spaces.

    Don't have a bike but want to join the fun? Thanks to Metro, our Bike Month co-sponsor, we will have a limited number of Metro Bike Share bikes available for use on this Sunday Funday ride. Bike Share riders must be 16 or older, sign a bike share waiver, stay with the Sunday Funday group and will be able to use the bikes during the Sunday Funday ride only. Bikes are available on a first-come first-served basis limited to 20 bikes. If you need a bike and would like to check out a Bike Share bike, you must sign up in advance for a bike here: https://goo.gl/forms/uqWbqFaPjK5dqJQC3  This ride is part of a series of rides for Bike Month presented by Metro.
