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 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.
