Basic Bike Maintenance at Cycles for Change(April)

This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of maintaining your bicycle yourself. Learning to fix your own bike can save you money, ensure access to reliable transportation, and be a rewarding personal experience to understand how your vehicle functions. Participants aren’t expected to know anything beforehand – the only thing you need to bring is your lovely selves, your bike if you want, and a creative desire to learn! In addition to providing technical explanations and building mechanical knowledge and confidence, this class will attempt to provide a basic overview of the role of community bike shops throughout the country and world, as we work to build sustainable transportation movements locally and globally.

Non-Traditional Parents Group

This class is intended to provide support to people with children who are raising their children or living their own lives in a non-traditional way.  We seek to share our experiences, thoughts and compassion with others who share the common bond of raising a young person in a time of revolution.  The subject of our meetings will ultimately be based on what the group would like to discuss but some subjects may include.

How we support our children in their individuality

How we deal with troubling behavior

How we deal with images and ideas from the media

Recipe shares/ diet

How we keep politically involved as parents

How we involve our children in the world

How we expose or shelter our children from politics 

How we embrace non-conformity in our households 

How we deal with critisism from the outside world

 

Children are welcome!

Women and Trans Only - Beyond Basic Bike Maintenance at Cycles for Change

* This class is part of the Women and Transgender Night at Cycles for Change, which offers a safe and welcoming space for self-identified women, trans, and non-gender-conforming people in the dude dominated world of bikes. No matter what your level of experience, we welcome you to come learn and teach and share (and just hang out). We have a regular open shop time every Tuesday from 5-8pm for you to use our space and tools. Female mechanics will be here to help you with any questions. *

The class is open to people with all levels of experience. Participants will be guided step by step to repair all bike systems, with technical explanations and hands-on practice. In full, folks attending this class will learn how to perform a tune-up/overhaul of a bicycle. Participants will work with the same bike through the class, in order to see the complexities and intricacies of one specific bicycle. Note: All class participants will fix up SHOP BIKES during this class. Bikes fixed up will be donated to one of Cycles for Change's many community programs!

Classes are on Tuesdays from 6-8:30pm. Each class will build on the knowledge from previous classes, but feel free to just drop in to one:

February 11 Introduction, flat fixing

Indigenous Imperative!

 

The premise of course is that our future is not only ecological but
indigenous. We will be looking at not only the Six Nations Confederacy,
but several other cultural and political powers in the western
hemisphere including the Hopi, the Ojibway, the Inca, the Maya, Aztecs
and many others.  Be ready to also consult your own indigenous roots as well as learn about indigenous people of the Americas.  

One of the goals of this course will be to not only
push the envelope but get rid of the envelope. No discussion of our
problems or potentials is possible without our indigenous center.
