Bike Maintenance Demo to benefit Crozet Trails Crew

“Cheers for Charity” at Starr Hill Brewery: The Trails Crew will receive $1 for every pint of beer sold during April.  So here is another opportunity to drink beer, plus learn how to take care of your bike. Cor, owner of Crozet Bike Shop, will teach us some simple bike maintenance. Door prizes — you could win a free bike tune-up. Why not ride your bike to the brewery — you know you don’t want to be doing your taxes.

Crozet Cycling Club – Monday/Thursday rides

Crozet Cycling Club

Mondays and Thursdays, the Crozet Cycling Club will ride between 5-10 miles at a comfortable pace around Crozet.  We’ll figure out the route, but most likely will include Mudhouse to Railroad Avenue to Mint Springs, back down to Lanetown Road and then Jarmans Gap.

The only requirements are a bicycle, helmet, and a desire to ride our beautiful roads!

Find the Crozet Cycling Club on Strava.
