Like a spa day for the bike

Give a little extra attention to your two-wheeled vehicle today during a daylong workshop at Frog Farm at Siskiyou Mountain Herbs near Takilma.

It's from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free except for a $10 fee that goes toward materials to make bucket panniers.

The day will begin with a demonstration of how to make inexpensive bucket panniers, or bicycle bags, from 9 to 11 a.m. Participants should bring square buckets. Hardware kits for making th epanniers will be available at cost, about $10.

From 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Keith Kohler, a bike mechanic and former co-owner of Pedal Express in Berkeley, Calif., will offer free bike tuneups. Mechanics from the Bike Clinic in Ashland will be on hand to fix brakes, tires and other minor problems.

Frog Farm is at 9044 Takilma Road, nine miles from Cave Junction.
