Sharing Wheels offers bike classes open to the public. The goal is to give people the skills to work on their own bikes – as well as to train future volunteers who can help in the shop. Classes are for adults, age 18 and up.
NEW! Bucket Pannier Making Class
Make your own bucket panniers. They are sturdy and waterproof! They have many uses! Commute with them, use them as a chair, carry your water, fill with sand and hold down your tent in the wind, use as a stepstool to dumbster dive. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Classes will be winter 2014. Check back later for details or contact the shop if interested.
We are currently looking for buckets to recycle. If you have any square or rectangle buckets please donate to Sharing Wheels.
