Summer means it's time to dust off your mountain bike, roadster or cruiser, and what better way to do that than with the Denver Public Librarys Nuts 'n Bolts Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop? Its things like how to fix a flat tire, tighten brakes, and even how to adjust a derailleur, says library program associate Simone Groene-Sackett. Its a lot of fun. It gives a real sense of satisfaction to work on your bike and then ride it.
Starting today at 1 p.m. at Acoma Plaza (between the west entrance of the Central Library and the Denver Art Museum), Curt Wallach from Track Shack will offer a short demonstration and then host a Q &A session. The part people like most is when it evolves into one-on-one time with the presenter, says cultural programming director Chris Loffelmacher. Its everything from repair advice to track information and product recommendations. Hed probably stay until the sun went down to answer questions. Its really thorough.
Admission is free. For more information, call 720-865-1111 or go to www.denverlibrary.org.
Sun., June 27, 1-3 p.m.; Sun., July 25, 1-3 p.m., 2010
