Debbie Twiddy submitted this interesting info. "Who says women can't change a flat! Our cycling group from BellRock is active on Tuesday mornings and it is only a matter of time before somebody gets a flat tire or other minor problem with a bike. Graeme from Frontenac Cycle recently gave a workshop for us, demonstrating tune-ups and simple bicycle repairs. We brought in our own bicycles and he used them to demonstrate how to fix a flat, how to adjust and lubricate a bike, and several other simple trouble-shooting tricks. And he has promised to join us for a ride out here sometime in the near future to give us some cycle touring techniques. Thanks to Graeme for generously donating his time. And, folks, come out and join us. Tuesdays 9 am at BellRock Hall. Contact Debbie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Virginia (613-374-2344) to confirm details for any given week."
