Free women's bike maintenance and safety clinic on September 30

Century Cycles is hosting a free Women’s Bike Maintenance & Safety Clinic on Thursday, September 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. at its store in Rocky River. The special instructor for this ladies-only clinic is Jackie Baker, a pro rider and expert trainer from Giant Bicycles who is a liaison from their comprehensive Giant for Women program.

Meet Jackie and learn from the pro! The clinic's topics are how to change a flat tire (the #1 bike maintenance skill), Jackie’s five-minute bike safety checklist (to make sure a bike is good to go before a ride) , and her road-or-trailside survival tips should you break down away from home (and nobody is answering their cell phone to come pick you up).

Wine, cheese and other refreshments will be provided. Attendees can also register to win a $50 Century Cycles gift card!

This event is FREE and no registration is required. This clinic is being held at Century Cycles' Rocky River store at 19955 Detroit Road, next to Herb's Tavern. For more information, call Century Cycles in Rocky River at 440-356-5705 or go to
