Time change for clinics starting this week!

Hey Huskies!

There has been a lack of interest in the 1pm session for our bike maintenance clinics we are starting this week, so we’ve decided to move it to 4:30pm.

If you are able to make this time and would like to learn in a more focused environment about bike maintenance, contact asuwbike@uw.edu soon!

The 3pm session is unaffected and will be held at the same time, so need to worry if you are signed up for it.
