Want to learn about your bike and build your skills this year?  League of American Bicyclists Certified Instructor, Irene L., will be offering a short class before this Saturday ride.  August’s topics are brakes and gears. The class will include what to look for in a pre-ride check, knowing when you need new brake pads, safe braking techniques, fine adjustments, and explanations about how to utilize your gears for a comfortable ride. Bring your questions and get answers before we go on a ride to Wollaston Beach, North Quincy, and East Milton.
