Join us for a Bike Maintenance workshop taught by Christopher Stanton of Ghisallo Foundation and hosted by Austin's Yellow Bike Project! Thanks to YBP, not only will we will have plenty of stations and tools for everyone to perform common repairs and maintain the bike you love, it will also be a great introduction to your community bike shop and recycle center.
This hands-on workshop will cover bicycle maintenance and repair topics including flat tires, brake functionality and brake pad wear, chain care, basic road safety and much more!
Included in the cost of this workshop is a patch kit, tire lever, and print material.
Participants are encouraged but not required to bring their own bike. Come to have fun, ask questions, and learn something new.
Christopher completed his first major cycling tour from Vancouver, Canada to San Diego, CA in the fall of 2008 and started his first season of racing in the spring of 2009. Working part time at a bike shop enabled him the freedom to train, working his way up the ranks of the peloton to CAT3, while continuing to tour each year (Rapha Continental, 30 Days in Italy, and Boston->Austin). He started a new Austin based team which debuted in the Spring of 2011 and was finally able to launch a new bicycle based non-profit that Fall. He is super excited to build The Ghisallo Foundation into a successful and self-supporting organization helping to build the future of bicycling in Central Texas.
