Common Cycle’s bi-annual maintenance courses are intended to help train future volunteers and community members by providing hands-on experience and general knowledge about fixing bicycles and assisting people who come to our bicycle co-op.
Common Cycle’s Spring 2019 Maintenance Course will be held on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm, beginning March 20th and run for 6 consecutive weeks, concluding on April 24th. Classes will be held at the Common Cycle Co-op, located at 416 W Huron St Suite #11, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. We cover a range of repair and maintenance from basic (e.g. tube change, brake adjustment) to advanced (e.g. hub overhaul, wheel truing).
The course is capped at 15 students so that everyone will have some time and space to do hands-on work. No advance knowledge of bike repair is required, just an interest in learning more. Students may bring in their own bikes which we will diagnose as needed and use for demonstration.
Although this is a low/no-cost course, we ask you to respect the large amount of volunteer work that goes into facilitating and teaching the course.
- If you are enrolled, we expect you to attend the majority of sessions or make clear in your application if you will not able to attend some sessions.
- If selected, we expect participants to volunteer during at least two Common Cycle events over the subsequent 12 months.
