Adult Bike Repair Class, April 2019


3939 Lancaster Ave.


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!

February class runs from 6:30pm to 9pm on Monday evenings: April 8, 15, 22, & 29.
