Each month for the Ride and Wrench Series, we’ll meet at Chickahominy Riverfront Park for an all-inclusive group ride on city paths for about 10 miles. After we ride, we’ll take some time to teach some basic maintenance skills. We’ll have maintenance tool giveaways that correspond to the skill we’ll be practicing that month.
