6:00pm – 9:00pm

Cost: EBC members $20, non-members $25

If you want to start learning about working on your own bike but aren’t sure where to start, this workshop is for you!

Learn how to fix a flat tire at home or on the street, how to keep your brakes working flawlessly and your shifting smooth. You will find out how to save money by spotting small problems before they turn into big problems and by learning how to clean and lube your bike, you’ll learn how to extend the life of your bike while improving its performance. Bring your own bicycle so you can learn specific techniques that work on your components, or learn on one of the many EBC yard bikes.

Space is limited, and these courses tend to fill up quickly and pre-registration is required.

Pre-register by emailing Online pre-payment is encouraged (we’ll send you a link when you register). Please note that if you register without pre-paying but don’t attend the class or give 24 hours notice, you will not be eligible to register in future classes.

This is an introductory course. If your bike has a problem that is not covered by the scope of this course, we probably won’t have time to fix it, but you can always come to BikeWorks during regular drop-in times and one of our volunteer mechanics can help you.

Cost is $20 for EBC members and $25 for non-members.
