Bike Basics is our most beginner level workshop. In this 3 hour long workshop, you will get hands on experience giving your own bike some care and using the Bike Kitchen’s DIY tool share.

Bring your bike to get to know how it works! If you do not have one to work on, let us know and we can provide a bike.

Intro to Mechanics.png

During four interactive sessions, you’ll learn about bike tools, parts and the inner workings of our two-wheeled friends. Workshops run for four weeks on Thursday nights from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. REGISTER HERE for August 2019!

Knowledgeable mechanics will guide you through the basics of repairing and maintaining each system on the bicycle. Demonstrations are provided in a friendly and supportive environment with small class sizes.

Everyone is welcome! No bike required! If you do own a bike, we recommend that you bring it with you so that you can practice repairs on your own bike under the supervision of our instructor – it’s a great way to get to know your bike!

Mech 201.png

Mechanics 201 offers an opportunity for folks with some mechanical experience to completely overhaul their bikes over eight weeks and under the guidance of an experienced mechanic. Workshops take place on Thursday nights from 6:30pm - 8:30pm.

Each workshop will walk the participants through stripping, cleaning, and refurbishing their bike, system by system. By the end of the workshop, participants will have increased familiarity with their own bike, a completely overhauled and tuned bike, and a basic understanding of part compatibility.

To be eligible for this course you must have completed our Intro to Mechanics Workshop series or have equivalent experience. If you are not sure if you qualify for this workshop, please e-mail programs@bikecoop.ca.
