Free Bike Workshops and Tune-Ups

Bike to Work Month is on the horizon and what better way to kick it off than to attend a free bike workshop right here at NCAR/UCAR. At these workshops experienced bike professionals from Community Cycles will come on-site and provide customized hands-on education and training. Plus, immediately after attending a workshop you will have the opportunity to receive a free bike tune-up right on the spot by an expert mechanic.
