Every now and then when out on the trails we come across injuries whether it be ourselves, or a fellow rider. Other times we come across bike malfunctions, flats, busted chains, busted derailleurs, etc. This event will cover all of these issues!! Our friend Mike Sheppard, a retired EMT/Fire Fighter of 35+ years and avid Mountain Biker, will walk us through common trail injuries and how to address them until you can get help. Following the First Aid Clinic, we will have a Bike Maintenance Clinic. Our friend Russ Anderson, a Bike Mechanic at REI and avid Mountain Biker of 35+ years, will walk us through common bike failures on the trail and how to get you back to the trailhead. There will be no First Aid Certifications given at this event, it is only for basic knowledge. You never know what you could encounter out on the trails so let us help you prepare for some of the basics!! Don’t forget to bring your bikes for an after-class free ride!!
