Everyday Riding Consults
Everything you've always wanted to know about cycling but were afraid to ask.
All of those other folks look like they are having so much fun, so why can't I? You can. And we're here to help.
Whether it's a quick trip to the store, a leisurely ride along Portland's many paved bike paths or getting started with your commute to work we're here to guide you through the process of de-mystifying your bicycle and gaining confidence in your skills. Haven't been on a bicycle in years? Live in a less-than-bike-friendly community? Don't want to look foolish in front your friends or colleagues? Fear not. This program offers one-on-one consultation with a seasoned expert from Gracie's Wrench, customized to meet your goals and needs. Here’s how it works:
During this session we'll assess your skills and help you discover the strategies that eliminate cycling challenges. You'll receive private, one-on-one instruction on basic cycling laws and etiquette, route finding basics and resources, bike security basics, commuter necessities, and more. We understand bicycle stores can seem like an intimidating universe with its own strange language and boundaries. Let us be your personal guide to this brave new world. Our shop really is your shop, and we want you to feel as at home as you would in your favorite grocery store. We'll tour the store (including our service area) as well as meet our staff who are always here to assist you, answer your commuting questions, and help keep your bike in top condition. This session should take approximately two hours and will be a great foundation to build your new cycling skills. $75 per session.
Remember, you don't have to be an expert in cycling to enjoy the fun and freedom of the open road. Let's get going together, one revolution at a time.
