About this event

SVBC and Community Cycles of California will teach you all the basics of fixing your bike so it is safe to ride! This is a hands-on, in-person, skill-building workshops that empowers you to repair and maintain your own bike. These 2.5 hour classes are open to ages 18 and up. You are encouraged to bring your own bike to work on!

Air - how to fix a flat, how to find out how much air to put in your tires, and taking wheels on and off!

Brakes - diagnose what adjustments your brakes need and learn to make the adjustments

Chain/Cassette - learn to make the adjustments to help your chain move smoothly and quietly across the cassette and chainrings

Please bring no more than one bike per class participant. It is ok if you do not bring a bike.

This class is provided to the public for free with funding from 2016 Measure B courtesy of VTA and Santa Clara County Public Health. While free to participants, it costs about $150/person signed up to conduct this course so if you signup make sure you show up -- otherwise this taxpayer money is wasted and cannot be recovered.

We also have a waitlist enabled for this course.
