Gorham Bike & Ski Tech Nite Clinic Series

Each month we present a short, hands-on and fun clinic about a specific subject. The clinics are free and you just need to bring yourself (and your friends, too!) along with a desire to learn something new. To make things easy and convenient, we will present the same clinic, at the same times at all of our Maine locations. For more information shoot us an email. Schedule or topics are subject to change.
