Sunday – Bikerowave is pleased to offer their first ever derailleur clinic.  Maxwell, Bikerowave’s mountain-biker extraordinaire will unveil the dark mysteries of the hangy thing that sits next to your wheel.  Bring your bike and be prepared for an exciting 90 minutes of limit-screw turning and barrel-adjuster spinning. Clinic starts at 3:00 P.M. at Bikerowave.  Get the details, here.

Sunday –   One fun way to get out with your family, friends or co-workers on your bicycles this summer is through the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, which has routes designed for all riders – from 8-mile family rides to 100-mile century rides. It is a ride, not a race, so participants are encouraged to go at their own pace. Tours will take place in 44 states across the country to benefit the American Diabetes Association and its efforts to stop diabetes.  The Los Angeles Tour de Cure takes place on Sunday, April 29th in Long Beach beginning and ending at the Queen Mary.  For more details, click here.
