CENTER FOR BICYCLE REPAIR
Repairs to your Bicycle
We put tools into the hands of riders. Riders bring their own bicycles to learn and to work on, no experience necessary.
Riders tend to spend 1-3 hours in the shop.
Cost is pay what you want, pay what you can.
Dates and times of upcoming group classes and clinics are posted on the calendar below. Use the sign up form at the bottom of the page to register for a class.
Classes and Clinics
Classes introduce riders the fundamentals of bicycle repair. Students gain a better understanding of how their bicycle works by working through modules designed by C4BR.
Clinics guide riders through replacing parts of their bicycles, such as brake pads, bottom bracket bearings or chains.
Guided repair classes walk riders through the same kinds of repairs that are traditionally offered by bicycle shops. Riders pick the time and pick what to work on.
