MassBike, through generous sponsorship from our partner, the Environmental Insurance Agency, will be offering four more fall classes free of charge open to the public. The classes will held in downtown Boston, at the Conservation Law Foundation office , EIA’s HQ.
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.
The Winter Commuter Workshop contains an abbreviated version of the summer workshop as well as additional tips for how to stay warm and dry. We’ll also covers how to maintain your bike, special gear for the winter, and safety tips for dealing with cold and wet weather.
