Bicycle Commuter Workshop Series Kicks Off

The Bike Hunterdon 2019 Bicycle Commuter Workshop series kicked off in January, with a “Bikes & Brew” session held at Clinton Bicycle Shop LLC, 51 Main Street, Clinton, NJ. The “brew”, in the form of tea and coffee, was donated by The Stone Bean at Riverside Coffee and Tea, Clinton.

Mr. Gardner Berridge, owner, Clinton Bicycle Shop, LLC, provided attendees with great information about maintaining a bicycle for winter riding or storing it away for the season as well as how to change a flat tire. We thank everyone who joined us to kick off the “Bikes and Brew” bicycle maintenance and safety series!
