Classes

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.

Read about the classes below, and if you are interested, sign up in advance to make sure we don’t have to cancel for lack of students.
