Bike Repair Class - Patch Me If You Can
Every year, 5BBC gives away dozens of tubes to fix flat tires at our Summer Streets repair table. But they're not new tubes - they're formerly punctured tubes recovered from day trips or from bike shop garbage bins. But someone has to patch them first - that's where we need you!
This very short ride meets at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park. From there we head to a spot in the park where we'll give a short class on tube-patching and then get to work. Suitable for all levels from beginner to expert - we'll teach beginners how to patch like a pro, and if you're already a pro we'll have plenty of extra tubes for you to work on. The tubes you patch today will rescue someone else's bike at Summer Streets on 8/7 and 8/14, or on some future bike event.
Bring your mini-pump if you have one. Patching materials and punctured tubes will be provided by the Club.
