Youth and adult classes are structured to boost the community by teaching bike repair skills and having access to a variety of tools and skill-building opportunities (like how to build a wheel). Bike Works’ most popular adult class, Bike Repair 101, is a six-week course that covers everything from fixing a flat to troubleshooting brakes and gears. This is great for people wanting to learn bike mechanics in a fun and supportive environment. All classes are on a sliding scale if participants want to volunteer with Bike Works. The Volunteer Repair Parties (VRP) are the best (and free!) way to learn bike repair. VRPs give folks a chance to new learn wrenching skills while refurbishing children’s bikes to support Bike Works’ youth programming. New volunteers are paired with experienced ones while learning the basics. VRP is held twice a week on a drop- in basis, on Thursdays from 6:30 to 9:30 pm and Sundays 10 am to 1 pm. Ready to wrench your own bike? Attend our Open Shop Community Repair Space on Sundays. It’s a friendly, safe and non-judgmental environment in which to learn, help others and build community. The space is available at a sug- gested cost of $5 per hour for repair stand time, tools and assistance. Punch cards are available, too. Remember, Bike Works’ full-service repair shop also sells refurbished used bikes and new parts and accessories.
