INLAND: Bicycle clubs offer free repairs to spur riders

Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of hundreds of people passing from booth to booth at Market Night in downtown Redlands, Matt Baker is getting pumped up about teaching people how to fix a flat bicycle tire.

“That’s the big thing that keeps people from riding,” he says, wringing his hands after tightening a set of handlebars. “They are terrified they’re going to get a flat.”

With a box of tools, some spare parts, and a collapsible sign with a spotlight clamped to it, Baker and others are working to bring bike maintenance basics to masses, and in turn boost the number of recreational and commuter bicyclists in the Inland area.
