Bike Commuter 101: Urban Riding and Maintenance Basics
Get yourself ready for National Bike to Work Day (May 18th) with a free Bike Commuter 101 class this Thursday, May 3rd from 5:30 to 7:00, at the Pittsburgh Green House.
The class will help you utilize bikes as a tool to paint your way through the urban landscape! BikePGH begins the class with a low-key discussion about riding in Pittsburgh – to work, to shop, to play. We use our Commuter 101 Guide as the basis of the conversation. All riders, no matter their experience have a valuable perspective to share and an opportunity to learn. We’ll swap stories and advice to give everyone a better understanding about riding a bike for transportation.
After our discussion the class moves outside to go over some basic maintenance skills – changing tires/tubes, adjusting brakes, seats, handlebars, cleaning your chain – to keep you’re bike in working order. If possible, we recommend you bring a few basic tools (tire levers, set of allen keys, screw driver, patch kit) so we can get everyone working hands on.
All are welcome to come, learn and teach.
