Workshops are $10 to $15 for non-members and $5 for members. They are on a variety of topics from drivetrain cleaning, wheel truing, and brakes to bike touring, winter cycling, and traffic skills.
If you're looking to learn more about bike maintenance, this is a great place to start. It's also a good way for novice volunteers to build up their skills and members to get more out of their membership with Community Cycles.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Work-trade is available for our classes and workshops, but must be set up in advance with the Shop Manager.
