"About a month ago attended a Bike Maintenance Clinic conducted by Tori at Bonneville Power. I've been riding for about 25 years and had accumulated all the knowledge I need for biking. Until I saw Tori's demo. Just goes to show us old dogs can still learn something. I picked up several nice tips from her.... Thanks Tori for a great session." --Mike, Bonneville Power
"As a full time bike commuter I really appreciated the bike repair workshop held this morning. There was a large crowd who kept asking questions well after the hour was up. I confess—my bike is really grimy. Now I know an effective and quick way to clean it. It was also a good reminder about taking care of the chain (and the right way to rub off excessive grease), brakes and rims. A well functioning bike is a much safer bike---as one whose breaks gave way on a hill I can certainly attest to this.
Thank for putting this on this workshop!" --Elly, Bonneville Power Administration
"I wanted you to know how much we appreciated you coming to CH for Thursday’s workshop. The people I have talked to all enjoyed it very much." -- Theresa, CHM2Hill
“I thought the training was fantastic. I would absolutely attend in the future. I am very interested in learning more and thought Tori was great. I really liked that she was very knowledgeable but not pretentious or superior. As a new rider it is easy to be intimidated by the bike culture of Portland but she was very down-to-earth and inspiring!” --CHM2Hill participant
“I really enjoyed the presentation yesterday and thought it was a very useful intro/overview. I feel like we could have sat there all afternoon talking about this, so I would like to see more presentations." --CHM2Hill clinic participant
"I've been riding since 1972 and have changed many flats (including sew-ups "back in the day"), but I was pleasantly surprised to find how helpful Gracie's "Fixing a Flat Tire" event was. Something about teaching an old dog new tricks...” --Lloyd Transportation Management Agency clinic participant
“I really enjoyed the presentation yesterday and thought it was a very useful intro/overview. I feel like we could have sat there all afternoon talking about this, so I would like to see more presentations. Bike repairs and maintenance would be great. I’d also appreciate more info on clothing and gear for a smooth commute, bike accessories (info on clip on pedals or not, lights, locks, fenders, etc.), and maybe a roundtable discussion on the various routes to work and tips for what might be best.” --CHM2Hill clinic participant
