Looking to enhance your bicycling knowledge? Knowing how to change your own flat is one of the most empowering things you can learn.
Take an hour out of your Saturday morning to learn how to fix your own flat and get any of your other bike maintenance questions answered.
What tools do you need? What tips and tricks make it easier? Tuesday, our mechanic, will take the time you need to make sure you feel confident giving it a whirl on your own. If you want to practice on your own bike, bring it. If not, we can probably find one for you to test your new skills out on. ;) Judgement free zone. We all start somewhere!
The League of American Bicyclists’ Smart Cycling program is designed to develop your knowledge and expertise in the craft and science of bicycling — the ability to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility and sport under various highway, climate, terrain, and traffic conditions. You will need your bike and a sack lunch will be provided.
Class size is limited and registration deadline is one week before the class date. Prepayment is required. Payment info will be included in your registration confirmation email.
Did you know a ride leaves from Spoke-N-Sport every other Tuesday and heads out to Leaders Park? Leaders Park is the home of single track recreation trail maintained by our friends of FAST (Falls Area Singletrack).
We will ride as a group to Leaders Park to do some laps. Total ride is somewhere between 8 and 15 miles. Even if you don't have a bike suitable for singletrack, come anyway. We can hang at the park together.
Following we will grill brats (veggie burger option, please make note in registration) at Spoke-N-Sport. If there’s something else you want to grill ... feel free to bring it. Bring a beer to trade and one (or two) to drink.
Looking to join a group ride but don’t know where to start? Join the Thursday Ladies, a group that loves to bicycle, hike, ski, kayak, and generally share, inspire, and encourage healthy activities and fellowship.
The ride starts in the parking lot between The Attic and the Goodwill on east 41st Street. Length of ride depends on participants, but we plan to have a road ride and bike trail ride. Choose your own adventure. This is a no-drop ride. Following the ride, stay for refreshments at The Attic. Appetizers are on us!
Camping is one thing, but packing all your gear and heading out on your bike makes it even more thrilling. Join this beginner-friendly ride to a state park. The mileage is around 25 miles one way and will take place on paved roads. We will meet at 3 p.m., roll out and ride together to arrive at camp for a cookout. After breakfast, we will pack up and ride back in the morning. Dinner and breakfast will be provided.
Spoke-N-Sport has reserved a specific number of camp spots. Registration and prepayment required. Payment info will be included in your registration confirmation email.
Cycling and yoga are a match made in heaven! Meet us at Spoke-N-Sport where we will gather before hitting the bike trail. We will stop at Fawick Park to take part in a 45 minute yoga practice led by Kendra Brouwer. (If you've been to one of Kendra's classes you know she will pay extra special attention to the muscles, fascia and connective tissue that propel us forward on our bicycles.) After yoga, we will bike back to Spoke-N-Sport. (Roughly 13 miles all together.)
Please bring: * Yoga mat if you have one (a few extra will be available)* Water* Bike* Helmet* Friend
This is a no drop ride and helmets are required. No need to haul your yoga mat, we will have them shuttled to the park while we ride.
Participants will learn about the sport as well as many of the skills needed to take part in it such as: mounting, dismounting, barriers and bike handling. This is a low-key, non intimidating introduction to the sport. Bring your bike (bikes with wider tires, like a mountain bikes are great), water, helmet, and a sense of adventure.
Two cyclocross events are available. Come to one, or come to both!
