InsideToronto.com: Bike repair clinic preps Scarborough cyclists for year-round riding

DIY bicycle repair clinic shows Scarborough cyclists how to keep their rides in shape all year round.

Organized by Scarborough Cycles, the repair sessions are aimed at improving participants’ knowledge about cycling maintenance, as well as instilling personal habits for keeping vehicles in good running order, according to program manager Marvin Macaraig.

“We hope everyone walks away with a basic understanding (of cycle repair),” said Macaraig who, along with staff ranging from four to seven volunteers, helps administer the weekly clinic which is held at the AccessPoint on Danforth community hub.

Visitors can pick up tips ranging from making quick repairs on-the-go to learning how to strip down old bikes for necessary parts.

“Cycling is an everyday activity, and there are very few places where (cyclists) can congregate in Scarborough,” said Macaraig.
