Free mountain bike workshops being offered this month

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Teton County Search and Rescue Foundation is partnering with Mountain Bike the Tetons to offer two free workshops this month on July 9 and July 30.

Modeled after the Foundation’s popular “What’s In Your Pack” classes, these workshops are tailored to mountain bikers to teach them the skills they need to be self-sufficient when things don’t go according to plan.

Skills taught during these workshops will include “What’s in Your (Bike) Pack,” how to fix a flat tire, common first aid for bikers and broken chain repair. Participants will also have the opportunity to “pick-the-brain” of the experts facilitating these workshops.

The workshops are free to attend and will be hosted outdoors at the TCSAR Hangar at 300 South Batch Plant Road. Registration is required to ensure appropriate group size. Anyone 16-years-of-age or younger must be accompanied by an adult/guardian.

Both events will take place in the evening from 5:30-8 p.m. July 9 is open to all and July 30 is a women’s specific clinic. These workshops are made possible thanks to a generous sponsorship from The Hub.
