Event description

Description

Wenches with Wrenches and Wine, is a ladies only basic bicycle maintenance series. Taught by women in the industry for women who have an interest in learning more about bikes and how to get comfortable performing basic to intermediate level bicycle repairs.



This event is our entry level introduction to fixing or repairing a flat tire.

  • Repairing tubeless tire *participant dependent*

We take a hands-on approach. Gloves and shop aprons will be provided, but we highly recommend wearing clothes that can get dirty/greasy.

Yes! There WILL be Wine! This clinic starts off with a lecture component and participants will be served a glass of wine while they are listening and learning about bike repairs.

Don't let fear of a flat tire keep you from riding your bike. We offer a fun and low pressure learning environment designed to make you feel confident about repairing a flat.

Increase your knowledge and have more fun on your bike!
