Zinn & the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance
This book is like the bible of bike maintenance and repair. It’s illustrated and will show you, step by step, how to fix your bike on your own. A bonus: The St. Joseph County Public Library also carries the companion volume, Zinn & the Art of Road Bike Maintenance.
Michiana Bike to Work Week
One of the best parts of cycling is the community. Every year—normally at the end of the spring—Bike Michiana Coalition organizes a Bike to Work Week. It’s a great reminder of the environmental benefits of cycling, as well as an opportunity to meet fellow riders in the area.
