Bike Maintenance Sessions

Designed for all riders that would love to gain a better understanding of their bike.

Our Bike Maintenance Sessions are intended for all riders who are interested in improving their understanding of their bike for minor repairs and ensuring that their bikes are set up correctly. If you would like, we also offer sessions that are specifically designed for women. You can find more information on these here.

We have three sessions that focus on different topics and all are taught by our staff at our bike shop. Each small group session is hosted at Arbutus Routes utilizing the tools and bike stands in the workshop. Be sure to bring your own bikes for the ‘Set Up Your Ride Session’ and the ‘Safety Check Session’.

Our staff will guide the group sessions, which aim to foster group participation and facilitate learning in a professional workshop setting. You can register for one, two, or all three sessions. Come join the fun and we’re excited to have you there!
