Adult Bike Repair Classes

Our Adult Programs offer the same fun, friendly, and accessible high-quality bike education as our Youth Programs and are open to people 18 years old to 80+ years old!  You can pay the regular fee or we offer reduced fees for our adult classes in return for volunteer service. The volunteer work trade model is a way for us to give back to our volunteers and to invite our students to participate in our volunteer community.

Registration opens one month before the class begins. If you don’t see the class you want, then please check back later! Scroll down to register.
