I just wanted to say a huge thank you and let you know what a fantastic Bike Clinic the 3C club held this past Saturday. It was awesome. So well organized and well thought out. Nothing was overlooked when it comes to changing a tire or keeping your bike in good working order. I like to think I’m a fairly seasoned rider but attending this clinic showed me I could still learn more and a review was even better. The set-up was great, everyone was able to participate and do their own bike, by changing a tire and a good cleaning of the chain.
Thank you to Roy and Diane, Glenna and Mary, Michael, Nelson and George and to all the others who helped behind the scenes. And a special thank you to the hosts, George and Carol.
It really shows what a great club this is as we strive for safe and better biking.
See you all on the next ride!
Web editor: A three-page handout was provided, and this was followed by a hands-on bike cleaning session lead by Glenna Christensen with help from Art Lee and Mary Perkins.
The Bike Clinic was well attended again this year with 11 members completing the 3 hour clinic. The topics included:
a review of proper bike clothing for comfort and safety.
mechanical inspection of your bike prior to a ride.
Ontario Traffic Act requirements, eg. for lights and bell.
Each Graduate was presented with a certificate created by Bob Astley’s grand-daughter Carly.
