Putting Your Bike to Bed for the Winter

Bike season is just about over! Join avid cyclist Robert Kaplafka for this presentation to learn how to prepare your bike for a winter storage so it will be ready to roll next spring. We will also cover basic bicycle maintenance and repairs.

Robert Kaplafka started working on bicycles at a very early age. A lifelong fascination with all things mechanical and a “DIY” attitude led him to search out and repair bicycles that others had abandoned, especially antique ones. His favorite bicycle project was restoring a tandem bicycle that was originally purchased at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Robert has been a professional Heavy Machinery Mechanic for the past 30 years, and today works at the Peoria Public Library.
