WRCC's popular Stand Nights are back in 2024! These events are open to all WRCC members and local community members. These are opportunities for the community to learn how to fix common cycling-related issues themselves and become more confident in their ability to discuss problems they may face with their equipment in the event it needs to be taken to a local bike shop for repairs. As their schedules allow, we will also have guest speakers attend to share their expertise on cycling related topics that interest our riders.

June TBD (11:00am): Fix-a-Flat

This Stand Night will cover a vital skill everyone should know: how to fix a flat tire. There will be a quick demo and lots of hands-on practice. By the end of the session, you will feel empowered to confidently fix that flat whether alone or on a group ride. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. 

July TBD (11:00am): Wrapping your handlebars

Is your bar tape covered in grit, grime, and last season's worth of your sweat and tears? Learn how to replace it! Bar tape will be available on a first come, first serve basis. If you are particular about your bar tape, please feel free to bring your own, and we will walk you through the process. 

August TBD (11:00am): Prepping for your Cycling Event!

Whether you are joining the Wabash River Ride on August 26th or preparing for another late season event, join this Stand Night and learn how to prepare for unexpected mechanicals and the tools we recommend you carry in your bike bag. This is the perfect opportunity to replenish your spare tubes and patches and make sure you are ready for your next cycling event! Light snacks and beverages will be provided. 

September TBD (11:00am): Cleaning that drivetrain

A happy drivetrain makes for happy, stress-free rides. You will learn how to keep your drivetrain in good condition along with the opportunity to clean your drivetrain up in the process! Note this is a limited bike wash demo. Folks will have the opportunity to wash their drivetrain only. A demo on how to wash the rest of their bike will be provided, i.e. what to wash, how, and things to avoid, but washing the entire bike will not be part of this event due to time contraints.
