This class will be in-person, located at Washington Park, dependent on the weather. Students are encouraged to bring their own bicycle, but it is not required. The instructor will be reaching out prior to the class with details.
In this intro to bicycle mechanics class we will focus on maintenance that can easily be done at home to keep your bike happy. We will cover the following topics:
1. Basic Bike Anatomy- review and learn all the basic parts of a bicycle
2. Standard tools for at home repairs
3. Fix a flat- this is the #1 at home repair. Learn how to fix a flat for your bike, either tubed or tubeless, or offer tips for your fellow students if you have a tried and true method.
4. Drivetrain maintenance – cleaning your bike, lubrication, chain wear
We will also have time set aside to talk about your experiences and answer any questions you have.
Students that complete the class will receive a free patch kit and tire levers!
