Fix a Flat – In-Person Bike Clinic

A flat tire is not something to worry about if you have the know-how to repair it on the road. Come to this class and practice removing your wheel, replacing your tube, and getting your bike (and you) back on the ride.

Please bring your bike for a personalized experience, and a pump if you have one.

Location:  Endicott Library – Outdoors

If rain is forecast, we will call it 24 hours ahead of time. You will be notified via email 24 hours before the event.

BYOB is a unique take on your classic book group. Each member is encouraged to bring their own book based on a theme to discuss with the group. These can be books you loved, current reads, or just something that stuck in your mind that you want to parse out with a group of fellow bibliophiles.

Our first meetings are during Pride Month, so we’ll all bring books with LGBTQ+ representation. If you’d like some suggestions- try this list!
