20 Bike Maintenance Clinics: All New, All Free!

Century Cycles is proud to announce that after 19 years, we've switched up our educational clinics to make them better than ever for YOU -- more dates to choose from, more popular topics to learn, and the price is right (FREE!). We're offering 20 clinics from now through March on 12 different topics, so there is something for everyone and all can help you get more enjoyment out of your time on two wheels

All clinics start at 6:30pm (unless otherwise indicated), and last one hour. Light refreshments will be served. You do not need to bring your own bicycle to the clinic. Attendees also get a 15% discount on all parts and accessories purchased immediately after the clinic.

Although our clinics are FREE events, we ask that you please RSVP for each clinic by calling the store location that you'd like to attend (Medina: 330-722-7119; Peninsula: 330-657-2209; Rocky River: 440-356-5705). If you're on Facebook, be sure to "like" Century Cycles -- each clinic will have its own event page in the next few days and you can also then RSVP on Facebook.
