March 2022 update from University Bicycle Resource Center

Prime bicycling weather is just around the corner and it is time to get your bike ready!

Our next free class at the University Bicycle Resource Center will be “Annual Maintenance and Chain Cleaning” on Tuesday, March 22nd , 6-7:30 p.m. Keep your bike running smoothly throughout the year. You will learn and practice best techniques for cleaning and lubricating your chain and other routine maintenance. This is a hands-on class and it’s optimal if you have your bike with you to practice what you are learning in real time. Free class taught in person at the shop by India Viola, local bicycle advocate and educator.

If you can’t make it or would rather stay virtual, a Youtube playlist of recordings of last year’s virtual classes is available at

Though closed over spring break, after that the shop will be open for drop in DIY repairs. If more physical distance than the shop can provide is your jam, check out our Air and Repair stations throughout campus (map at ). Our current class schedule and shop hours are posted at .

Hope your spring semester is going great!
