Ride Your Bike To The Canoe Club, safely

To be more environmentally friendly we are asking our members and participants to Ride your bike to the canoe club. To make it safely it would be better if it is inspected and repaired if necessary. Velo Fix will be offering tuneups at the club on Wednesday June 12 from 3 pm to 7 pm. They will be sharing $10 from every tuneup with the club! Click here to reserve your spot.
