Bike maintenance class

I'm a 63-y-o woman new to Pittsburgh excited to explore rail trails in PA. (There were almost none where we moved from.) Would like to take a basic bike maintenance class, but didn't have luck finding anything current via Google or searching this message board. (Looks like I may have missed something just this past weekend?) Maybe they're just not starting up yet post COVID? Would appreciate it if anyone has leads or info. Thanks.
