“Ut-Oh I have a flat!”
Do you carry all the right stuff in your pack to fix a minor bike mechanical?
Do you know how to change a tire?
If the answer is no then we have the solution for you!
Last years Maintenance night was such a success we have decided to do it again this year.Â Our first evening will focus on the basic skills that every Bunnie should know to help themselves out of a bind when that inevitable trail-side mechanical occurs, and will be lead by our very own Muddbunnie, Jaclyn.
Special thanks to Dorothy for oganising an awesome location to hold the maintenance clinic, I believe Dorothy will also be arranging a fine selection of wine and cheese for the Bunnies attending to enjoy!
