2018 Park Tool Workshops

We are happy to announce that our Park Tool School Workshops will continue in 2018!

The Park Tool School is a hands-on maintenance and repair clinic written by Park Tool and taught by the experts here at TriCycle and Run. Learn how your bike works, how to change a flat or overhaul your bike completely. Clinic curriculum and materials originate from the BBB-3 Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair, which acts as the outline for each clinic.  Our clinic will review the basics of home bicycle maintenance, plus give you the skills to perform basic bicycle tune-ups and diagnose and repair mechanical issues as they arise.

Registration fee:  $150 (includes a Park Tool Mechanics Apron & a copy of the Park Tool Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair – a $50 Value)

2018 DATES:

January Park Tool School:  January 14 &  28  REGISTRATION HERE

UPDATED!!  February Park Tool School:  February 4 & 18  REGISTRATION HERE

March Park Tool School:  March  4 & 18  REGISTER HERE

Each workshop is a 2-day classroom style setting.  Class hours are 9:00am-1:00pm.  Lunch will be provided each day.  The registration fee of $150 is due on the first day of class.  Day one of each workshop will be an overview of basic bicycle information and maintenance knowledge.  Day 2 will be an intense hands-on classroom, so you are encouraged to bring your bicycle with you to class.  If you do not have a bicycle, but still want to learn, we can provide you with a bike to work on.  You should prepare to get your hands dirty on day 2!  It is truly a FUN experience, and a great workshop for every bike enthusiast!

REGISTRATION is required for these workshops as space is limited.  Please use the links posted above to register for either January, February or March.

HOLIDAY SHOPPERS, we think it is a great idea to purchase a GIFT CERTIFICATE to cover the cost of the clinic for the bike enthusiast in your life.  If you are interested, please call Laura today (410)745-2836.

Eagleman 70.3 Race Insight Videos

So we’ve put together some videos to help you prepare for your journey to Eagleman 70.3 this June. These videos cover the transition area, the swim, the bike and the run portion of the course. There are some slight tweaks to the swim and the run course this year so make sure to watch. The bike course gives you some great local tips and tricks about things on the course (Bridges for checkpoints, Rumble Strips, Obstructions, Water Locations, etc).

Before you ask any questions on the post, please be sure to consult your Athlete Guide AND the F.A.Q. section of the official Eagleman 70.3 website  http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/events/americas/ironman-70.3/eagleman/athletes/faqs.aspx#axzz42oteEWEu
