PORT TOWNSEND — It takes more than air in the tires to keep a bicycle on the road or trail. A new school being launched Thursday also aims to teach cyclists how to care for and maintain their rides.
A group of cycle enthusiasts have founded the Port Townsend Cycle School. It will be the only school that teaches bicycle maintenance in the region, founders say.
”E-bikes are part of the picture, as is frame building, wheel building, arts, restoration, and working with materials like wood and bamboo. There’s a wide spectrum of possibilities here.”
“When you see the growth in the interest in cycling, particularly in the electric bike field, this school is on target. None of the other institutes that we are aware of do much with electric bikes.”
“It might have an electric motor, but underneath it all, it’s still a bike,” Kolff noted.
“From repairing flats to fixing chains, there are still a lot people who want to know how to fix and maintain their electric bikes.”
