2017 Park Tool School Workshops

park-tool-schoolWe are happy to announce that our Park Tool School Workshops will continue in 2017!

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)

2017 DATES:

January Park Tool School:  January 8 & 22  REGISTER HERE

February Park Tool School:  February 5 & 19   REGISTER HERE

**UPDATED**  March Park Tool School:  March 12 & 19  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.

Back to School FREE 5K Fun Run

 

It’s that time again!  Come out and join us for our August FREE Fun Run on Sunday, August 18 at 9:00am.

Mark your calendars and join us for an event open to all ages and abilities.  Our course is ideal for four-legged friends as well as strollers too!

All of our races are ‘FREE’, but we do encourage participants to bring a donation to various charities and organizations.  Our goal with this event is to fill our local schools with additional school supplies for those in need for the upcoming school year.  Suggested items to donate include glue sticks, pencils, folders, notebooks, dry erase markers, loose leaf paper, antibacterial wipes, tissue and the list goes on and on!

As always, this is a prediction race – meaning you try to guess your finish time.  Anyone that guesses their finish within 10 seconds of your official race time will be declared a winner and receive a Gift Certificate for the shop.

We encourage everyone to complete online registration, but we will also have race day registration available inside the shop beginning at 8:00am on race day.  Bib pickup will also begin at 8am.  Pre-race meeting will begin promptly at 8:45am in our front parking lot at the store.  Race will begin at 9:00am.

ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE

Please plan to park in the St. Michaels Elementary School lot and make the short walk (2 blocks) down to the store for the race start.  There is one water station on course that participants have access to twice during the race.  We will also provide bottled water at the finish line as well.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON AUGUST 18!
