Looking to get back in the cycling swing of things? Metropolis Cycles (2249 N Williams Ave) is hosting a free commuter clinic (that I’ll be teaching) on the first Monday of each month starting in May.

The clinics will share professional mechanic advice for a better commute. Clinics will cover common topics such as flat repair tips, and also some lesser known and advanced tricks to make your commute more reliable, less costly and more enjoyable.

Metropolis is a repair and service oriented shop. Co-owner Brad Parker says, “We understand that people need their bikes to get to and from work, so we provide a walk-up service for instant repairs, as well as free estimates.”


As avid bikers, co-owners Nathan Roll and Brad both champion community cycling and see commuting as a sustainable way forward for Portland. “Often commuting can open the door to other forms of recreational cycling,” says Nathan who is interested in introducing families to other areas of cycling.

The clinics start at 7:00 pm and run first Monday of the month starting May 7th (other dates are 6/4 , 7/2 and 8/6). As a bonus, clinic participants can purchase commuting mechanical parts with a 15% discount on the night of clinic.

See you there!
