Fall Bike Repair Class for Women by Women


TUESDAYS IN NOVEMBER: 7th, 14th and 21st.

CBC shop: 707 NW 11th Street.

Join Wendy Byrne and Carrie Burkholder, two local bicycle enthusiasts with years of professional wrenching experience. They're bicycle commuters, mountain bikers, road cyclists, and have toured by bike - they want to share their knowledge to get you more comfortable taking care of and riding your bike and getting as much enjoyment out of it as possible! Please note: we are offering these classes at no cost and are prioritizing participants with limited means to take this class otherwise. 

This is a series of three classes with a limit of six (6) participants per class. Participants are expected to attend each class. Must be 18 years or older to participate.

Thank you to Soroptimist International of Corvallis for funding this education series!
