Our Basic Bicycle Repair course for adults is a great way to begin learning how to repair and maintain your bike yourself, or to brush up on rusty repair skills. The class meets weekly for a month. Lessons typically include: flat repair, parts of the bike and bike fit, care and feeding of your brakes, shifting, and an introduction to overhauling bearings. More advanced procedures can be covered on request. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bikes and friends.*

*We do need at least five participants to hold classes so tell your friends and help support our youth programs!Woman compressed

Testimonials About the Class

"The most important things I learned were the hands-on experiences with repairing tubes and adjusting derailleur limts and indexing."

"I liked having the opportunity to practice things on my own bike- I think this is the way I learn techniques and skills the best!"
