Our popular course, Hands-on Intro to Bike Maintenance, returns this year with multiple dates and locations to choose from. This 3-hour class is a great place to start if you have little or no experience working on bikes and includes:

  • cleaning and lubrication,
  • how to fix a flat tire,
  • basic brake and gearing adjustments, and
  • how to spot small problems before they become big problems.

Bring your bike so you can learn about your specific components, or you can work on one of EBC’s bikes. A review booklet is also included in case you need a refresher down the road.

Already know some bike repair basics and want to take your skills to the next level? Check out our Advanced Bike Mechanics classes. Each class offers detailed insight into the workings of one part of the bicycle, which you’ll learn to fix and maintain like a pro. Topics include (but certainly aren’t limited to):

  • Wheels (bearings and truing),
  • Gearing & Derailleurs,
  • Brakes, Headsets & Bottom Brackets, and
  • Wheel Building.

    When I click the hyperlink above to check out the class times and to register I am brought back to the main page. I am interested in registering for the Hands-on Intro to Bike Maintenance class again to do a spring tune-up on one bike and then the Advanced Bike Mechanics course specifically to learn how to inspect and fix a rear derailleur on another. I have also signed up to volunteer and have attended the volunteer orientation, worked the Dec 31st casino but unfortunately have only been able to volunteer at Bike Works North once. I am hoping to start volunteering on a regular basis in the near future.
    Please let me know when these classes are available and how I can register.
    Thanks, and have a great day.

    Similar question, want to sign up for courses for a spring tune up, but none of the links are working. Where is the registration page?

      We didn’t have any classes on the schedule when you checked. Registration is now open for a class scheduled for March 31st, and we will be announcing more classes and dates next week.
      If you have any issues with your bike that you’d like to address sooner, please pop in to either BikeWorks location any time we’re open and our volunteer mechanics can guide you through the repairs.

      We are in the process of scheduling more 101 classes this season. The next will be on May 12th, and registration will open as soon as we have an instructor confirmed.
