Know the essentials and functions of your wheels before you set out on that long road trip
Starting from the dimension of the fuel tank to the artistry of the brake disc, a handsome bike is bound to turn heads. Up for a road trip but low on its road-worthiness? Here's your chance to know your machine better. A host of bike enthusiasts and engineers will conduct a workshop on bike machinery this Sunday.
"It's a do-it-yourself workshop where the participants will learn basic servicing techniques in case of an emergency and how to tune a bike ahead of a long trip," says Regan Rodricks, founder of Blue Bulb, a group that conducts sailing experiences and adventure activities in and around the city, the bike clinic being one of them.

The session will take you through essential skills such as fixing brakes and the clutch cable, changing the oil and dealing with punctures and ruined wheels. "If you learn these handy skills, you can go anywhere in the world with your bike," assures Rodricks.
"There will be three ramps. The participants will be divided into three groups. One ramp will have a Royal Enfield, the other will have a Bajaj or a Honda, and the third one will be decided on customer demand," he adds.
It is the ideal workshop if you happen to be an avid rider. Even if you are not, knowing how a bike works is an advantage before you own a vehicle. "It is our customers who had asked for such a workshop. It is easier to learn about bikes than cars," says Rodricks.
The age limit for the workshop is 16 years and above.
