Urbana Park District is helping teens tune up their bikes

A the weather warms we think about pulling those bikes down from their hooks or out of storage. It’s a good idea to get them all tuned up and fully operational and ready for a busy season of riding. 

Urbana Park District is offering a free bike tune-up workshop, geared toward teens, on March 25th from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Anita Purves Nature Center. Teens can come anytime during the workshop, learn how to work on the bike themselves, and leave with it ready for Spring. 

As someone who has no idea how to do even simple fixes on a bicycle, I think it’s a great thing that UPD is offering this to young people.
