Come hang out with fellow bicyclists at your local REI. Bring your bike, grab a complimentary brew, some grub, and a wrench. Get to work cleaning that chain, adjusting those cables, or replacing those brake pads with guidance from REI expert shop technicians. Work stands, tool sets, and REI expertise are provided free of charge. Don’t know where to start, or have never touched any moving parts on your bike? That’s OK, REI techs are on hand to walk you through some simple actions you can take to get your bike running smoothly. Have you recently taken a Bike Maintenance class at REI? Come practice your newly learned skills!
While you wrench, learn about the important work that local bike organizations like Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay are up to. Sierra Nevada Brewing Company’s beer will flow, Whole Foods Market will provide the snacks, and REI will supply the know-how.
