Women and Trans Basic Bike Maintenance at Sibley Bike Depot (july 2011)
The class will be similar to other beginning classes at Sibley Bike Depot, but is just for self-identified women, transgendered, and gender-queer people.
Over the four weeks you will get 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. In addition to building mechanical knowledge and skills, we can cover bike types, fit, and commuting as the class desires.
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! Come learn how to fix your bike from a female mechanic in a fun and inclusive space.
Four Sundays in July, the 10th, 17, 24, and 31st from 4:30 - 6:30pm
Sibley is located at 712 University in St. Paul, between Saigon restaurant and SugaRush Donuts.
Our regular Women and Transgender Open Shop Night is Tuesdays from 6-9 and is a great time to practice what you've learned and get involved with Sibley!
