[Call for Applications] Fall 2019 Maintenance Course

Applications are now open for our bi-annual maintenance course.

Common Cycle’s 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.

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 enrolled, we expect you to attend the majority of sessions (4+) or make clear in your application if you will not able to attend some sessions.

If selected, we ask that participants volunteer at at least two Common Cycle events over the subsequent 12 months (these can be while you’re enrolled in the class as a way to compliment your work in class).

Ride goodly.
