Join us for Base Camp Cyclery’s inaugural Women’s Tech Series led by pro mechanic Sarah Willett! Each interactive, hands-on clinic will focus on a segment of bicycle maintenance relevant to the average rider.
All Classes run from 6p-8p. Tickets are $20/session or $120 to attend the full series. Classes will be small enough that every attendee will be able to actively participate. At the end of each clinic attendees will have the option to purchase curated tool/parts package relevant to the topic of the class at a 15% discount off of retail.

6/20 Tires, Seat, Grips, and Pedals – This clinic will discuss contact points and how location and ride style will influence parts choice. We will have a Q & A to discuss parts and fit.
7/18 Quick Tune and Clean – In this session we will show you a 20-30 minute tune you can do at home to reduce premature wear and help keep your bike running smoothly between visits to the bike shop.
8/29 How to Upgrade – In our final clinic, we will discuss smart ways to upgrade your bike without breaking the bank. It’s the end of another great season, you’ve ridden a ton, but don’t quite have enough money for a new bike. We’ll cover ways to improve your existing bike in order to keep it feeling fresh and relevant. This clinic will include a Q & A session.
