WRCC's popular Stand Nights are back in 2023! These events are open to all WRCC members and local community members. Conveniently hosted at Hodson's Bay Company, 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.
July 8th (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.
August 12th (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.
