It doesn’t matter how experienced a rider you are. At some point you will get a flat tire. And if you don’t know how to fix a flat, it’s a complete game changer, leaving you at the mercy of riders or drivers around you or forcing you make a desperate phone call. Don’t let a flat ruin your ride. Knowing how to change a flat and the tools you’ll need will give you the confidence that you won’t ever be stranded. Come out and learn how. Bring your bike and tools for this hands-on seminar.
This is mandatory for anyone who has yet attended a Flat Fix clinic.
Our good friends at Sweet Pete’s will be hosting a training kick-off evening for Bike Rally participants on Saturday, April 7, 6:00 – 9:00 pm at 1204 Bloor Street West. They will run short 15 minute sessions on:

A one day event to check off some of those required seminars: the First Year Orientation and the Flat Fix Seminar. There will also be a speaker from HEAL Nutrition to talk about how you should manage your diet as you increase your training, as well as what to eat and drink on the bike. The First Year Orientation and Flat Fix Seminars will be run twice each, at 10:45 and 12:30, and the Nutrition Seminar at 2pm. This will also be an opportunity for riders to try on the jerseys to make sure you get the sizing right. This all goes down at PWA at 200 Gerrard Street East on Saturday, April 14.
