Hello! We are now accepting applications for our Fall 2018 Maintenance Course. Please read through the info below and direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Common Cycle’s biannual 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 open repair hours.
Common Cycle’s Fall 2018 Maintenance Course will begin Tuesday, October 9th and run on 6 consecutive Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 in Ann Arbor, concluding on November 13th. Classes will be held at Common Cycle’s new workspace at 416 W. Huron, Ann Arbor, 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). Full schedule below:
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. For this reason:
- If you are enrolled, we expect you to attend the majority of sessions (4+) or make clear in your application that you will not able to attend some sessions.
- If selected, we expect participants to volunteer at at least two Common Cycle events over the subsequent 12 months.
