Doing your own bike maintenance can save you money, but buying all the tools you need gets expensive – especially those $50+ specialized tools that you only need once every 3 years.
Velo Club Monterey can help as we have an extensive set of bike tools that any current member can borrow.
Whether it’s headset tools, bottom bracket or freewheel removers, cone or pedal wrenches, cable cutters, a wheel truing stand, or just about any type of bike maintenance tool – we’ve probably got what you need to keep your ride running smooth. The Repair Help section of the Park Tools website is an excellent resource to help determine what tools you might need for a specific repair
Jan the Velo Club Answer Man is the Keeper of Tools. To find out if we have a specific tool, or you are a Velo Club member who wants to borrow one, send an email to Jan at email@example.com
Hazard in a bike lane? Dangerous pothole? Broken grate? If it’s time to fix a hole in the middle of your road, the Transportation Agency for Monterey County makes it easy to report a roadway problem for cyclists. Access the TAMC Bike Service Request Form here to report a roadway problem to the county and they’ll send the report to the appropriate agency.
You may not know it, but Velo Club Monterey sponsors the local Junior Development Cycling Team which has been run by club member Gordon Martine for several years. The Junior Development Team has made great strides as they begin 2016. There are 7 juniors currently in the program. These young athletes (ages 13 – 16) include: Christina, Elijah, Louisa, Hanna, Sage , Ryan and Matthew.
The calendar may still say February, but you can see springtime from here and some early season organized rides are already on the horizon. Time to start training for one of the upcoming Central Coast rides that are an annual event for many Velo Club Monterey members.
