2010 Bike Maintenance Clinic
||This year Jeanne Chilson offered the Chilson Motors facility on Highway 93 for our bike maintenance clinic. The April rain was needed and we hoped it wouldn’t keep anyone away and it didn’t seem to. In all, thirty cyclists signed the guest book. Similar to last year, the tire changing station saw a lot of action. Matt Evans put together a nice poster on how a tire stays on and participants got to put their new tire levers to use on the practice wheels and tires. The bike cleaning station was aslo a big hit. Jerry shared his wealth of knowledge of maintenance and advice while participants cleaned up their rides. This year we added a “What’s in the bag?” area. Jim, Linda and Scott laid out the contents of their bags and explained the purposes for what they carry. Terry from Bike and Sport also loaned Scott and Linda some tools and other items to provide examples of what is available. To top the event off, Chilson and Overdrive provided cookies and drinks and the rain stopped long enough in the afternoon for Jim to get a ride in.
