Basic Bike Maintenance

The fall is my favorite time of year. Cycling in the cold, a runny nose, carving pumpkins, and hot apple cider are some of my favorite parts of it. I love the grey skies providing a crisp backdrop for orange and yellow leaves, and I love listening to Chopin’s Mazurkas with coffee in the afternoon. Especially when it first gets cold outside. That’s the best.

One of my favorite parts of fall is the return of the school year; new notebooks and pens. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the world of academia and I do miss it sometimes. Hence my excitement: This fall, I debut as instructor for our Basic Bike Maintenance class!

That’s right, every Monday night in November (sorry guys, gotta find a new Dungeons & Dragons night), I’ll be heading up this season’s installment of everybody’s favorite class. I’m excited enough about it that I’m even ok with missing Dungeons & Dragons.

Basic Bike Maintenance will run Mondays from 5 to 7. Each class is the exceedingly reasonable price of $12, or sign up for the whole series for $40. The first class focuses on bike fit and customization. The second class covers brakes. The third class we’ll look at shifting. The fourth class we’ll talk about bearing systems. I’m super excited about all of it.

Possibly the best part is that we’ll have time each class for you to practice what you learn on your bike. That’s right, bring a bike and practice your newfound skills on your own bike. Did I mention that I can’t wait?

Sign up for the class by following the link below, and I’ll see y’all on Mondays!
