Weekly Activities and Bike Clinics

All weekly activities begin at the Outing Rental Center. Registration opens on August 17. Schedules subject to change. Register by clicking the clinic title in the chart. 

Modern bicycles are simple yet complex machines. But did you know there are plenty of things you can do to keep your ride running smoothly without spending much time, effort, or money? The OAP bike maintenance crew will demonstrate how to clean, lube, and adjust your bike to keep you rolling and avoid costly repairs down the road. No need to bring your bike; just bring your curiosity and questions.
