Winter Workshops!

We’re pleased to announce the first of our regular workshops that will be offered throughout the winter.  The workshops are a partnership with BikesEMU and are on the campus of Eastern Michigan University.  We will begin each day with 30-minute tutorials in small groups so you’ll have plenty of opportunity for hands-on learning about a particular part, tool, or technique.  After the tutorials, we’ll switch gears and focus on fixing the bikes collected by BikesEMU.  This will allow you to hone your newly minted skills, test the knowledge of our mechanics, and help get a gaggle of great bikes working again!

Space is limited because we want to be able to give our participants undivided attention, so we have a 15 person maximum.  The first workshop will be at 3p on Sunday January 9th.  Email eric@commoncycle.org to get yourself on the list and he’ll give you the top-secret location.  You can come for the tutorial, the open workshop, or stick around for both.  All you need is a bit of curiosity and a free afternoon, we’ll provide everything else!

You can count on a workshop approximately every-other weekend (Saturday or Sunday afternoons), with additional workdays as dictated by demand.  The weekends of January 30th and February 13th are tentative 2nd and 3rd workshop weekends.  See you there!
