Fixing a flat tire on the road, or correcting a broken chain are just two topics covered in a two hour Emergency Road Repair workshop offered by CABS. “Many mechanical issues can occur when bicycle touring, “stated Brian Hahn, Instructor, “the key to any successful ride is prevention through maintenance.”
Introduced in fall of 2019, the “Emergency Road Repair” workshop will cover prevention and maintenance, then take students through quick repairs designed to get their bikes rolling again.
Emergency Road Repair with rider safety top of mind.
“The course will not cover extensive servicing,” stated Hahn. “It will teach safe and affective methods of fixing break-downs quickly to get rolling again.”
