Spring Maintenance and Repair Course

Registration for the course is closed. See you in the spring!

We’re pleased to announce that we’re offering another maintenance and repair course this spring!  There will be 6 sessions from 3/28/13 – 5/2/13 on Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Outdoor Adventures (336 Hill St.). The syllabus is available here. No prior experience is required.

Each session will be taught by one or two Common Cycle volunteers, will include demos and hands-on work. Because of the nature of working under time constraints, participants will not be working on their own bikes during the course. Instead, we’ll have several demo bikes available for the class that no one has to ride home 🙂

Registration is limited to 12 participants. If you wish to register, please email ben@commoncycle.org. We are asking registrants for a $25 donation (can be made online and includes the price of a CC T-shirt at the end of the course) or a written statement about why you would like to enroll and a commitment to volunteer at the Mobile Repair Stand 2 times over the summer. Preference will be given to those who can attend every session.
