CLINICS

We offer FREE clinics every other Saturday morning. Scroll down this page to see the upcoming dates and topics. In January and February we offer private lessons. These will be more hands-on than our free clinics and you get a full hour of one-on-one time with an experienced mechanic. Click the "book a private lesson" button to see dates and times available.

 If there is a particular clinic topic you are interested in, drop us a line at info@pedalpowerbikeshop.com and we'll try to schedule it in.

Clinics are subject to change due to demand at shop's discretion, feel free to call to verify dates.

Book a private lesson with one of our mechanics for a hands-on lesson on flat tire repair. From start to finish you will learn everything you need to know to change a tire and prevent the chance of a repeat flat. We strongly encourage bringing your own bike if possible. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting greasy and closed toed shoes. Private lessons are 1 hour and are $45 for a regular bike and $65 for an e-bike. 

Flat Tire Clinic

Flat tires happen to all of us, but don't let that stop you from riding! Come join us January 7th at 9:15 AM for our flat changing clinic. This clinic will cover all the tools you need to change a flat when you're on the side of the road, how to use those tools to your advantage, and change your own flat with confidence. Our mechanics will demonstrate with different types of tires and if time allows, participants will have the opportunity for hands-on practice changing a tire. This is a very popular clinic so registration in advance is encouraged, however not required. No equipment is necessary, just bring yourself!

Gears and Shifting 101

Do you know how many gears your bike has? Do you shift while you ride and use those gears? Or do you keep it simple and ride single speed? Regardless of how you ride, come join us January 21st at 9:15 AM to learn more about gears and shifting!

Proper shifting can reduce rider fatigue, increase endurance, improve your speed, and prevent you from coming to a stop in the middle of that big hill. Stop in and learn more about your bike’s gear options and how you can use them to their full potential and enjoy your ride even more than you already do! In this clinic we will cover: 

  • How many gear combinations/speeds your bike has
  • The functions of the front and rear derailleur
  • When to shift and what not to do
  • Climbing hills while shifting
  • Cross chaining and how to avoid it
  • What cadence is and how to use it to your advantage
  • The trim feature on road bikes
