Who should attend this activity?
The Bike Clinic is especially designed for newbies – those who want to try riding a bike but do not know how to start. Biking
may seem overwhelming with all the jargons and technical stuff but we’ll do away with that and just focus on the BASICS.
Everyone is welcome – guys and girls, kids and adults, students or professionals! If you are new to the wonderful world of
biking and still have doubts, concerns and fear, we will do our best to clarify your doubts, address your concerns so you can
face your fear and start riding safely and smartly!
Note: Children who are joining the Bike Clinic are expected to be guided by their adult companion.
I’m not really a bike newbie, but can I accompany my “newbie” friend to the clinic?
That’s perfectly fine. If your presence can encourage your friend to join the clinic, by all means, you are also welcome to join.
When will this be held?
Save the date: Sunday, 25 July 2010. Bike Clinic will start by 8 AM and is expected to finish by noon.

works for clean air and a habitable, people-friendly environment in our cities. By conducting free clinics, we are encouraging
more people to go ride a bike. For more on the Firefly Spirit and Guiding Principle, you may check out www.fireflybrigade.org.

Is there a need to bring a bike?
For participants that already have a bike, please bring it to the clinic. Don’t worry about parking. Tiendesitas is a bike-friendly
place and there are bike parking racks available.
