MassBike Summer Education Program, Presented By Adobe

Thanks to the generous support of Adobe Systems, MassBike is offering a variety of summer education classes free of charge to the general public. The classes will be in Waltham, where Adobe is located, but all are welcome to attend.

Our first round of classes is listed below. These classes will be our Commuter Workshop and our Maintenance Workshop.

The Commuter Workshop is a fast-paced, one hour workshop covers topics ranging from bike choice, gear choice, route planning, safety, rules of the road, how to look professional when you get to work, and other general tips and tricks. It is a great introduction to a variety of aspects of bicycling, and most people leave this class feeling much more confident about riding their bicycle.

The Maintenance Workshop covers how to fix a flat, how to adjust your seat post, how to lube your chain, and a basic overview of bike parts and what they do. Presenters bring all tools/props needed to teach this class, so attendees will not need to bring anything other than themselves to this presentation (please do not bring a bicycle to be repaired). This class will teach you the absolute basics you will need in order to perform some of the most common bicycle upkeep tasks.
