The first class will meet at...
3530 East 28th St, Mpls MN 55406. (Its a big building full of studios across from Brackett Park in Seward, and the entrance we'll use is a side door on 28th Street.)

Starting June 15 @ 5pm

This class was born out of a desire to get together people who are interested in bike touring but have been intimidated by it (the physical demands, the bike culture, whatever) and DO IT! We will go on rides around the cities, learn about bike maintenance, touring resources, make crafts, and more! The class will be shaped by the desires of the people in it, so we will decide later how far we will go, but the idea is for the class to culminate in a three day/two night bike trip in the area. We want to emphasize that this is for people of all biking backgrounds!

Our ideas for the weekly classes leading up to the trip include:
- Weekly meetings and roving group rides
- field trips to bike friendly places, such as Sibley Bicycle Depot
- Discussions on how to physically prepare for a bicycle tour
- Lesson on how to fix a flat + other bike maintenance
- Plan and map out a final three day/ two night ride.
- Learn how to make a spoke-let

We will not be able to provide bikes, so we recommend you own (or be able to borrow) a bicycle in good working condition. (We will have a basic maintenance day, so it doesn’t have to be perfect!)

La primera clase se reunirá a las ...
3530 East 28th St., Minneapolis MN 55406. (Es un gran edificio lleno de estudios a través de Brackett Park en Seward, y la entrada que vamos a utilizar es una puerta lateral en la calle 28.)

Desde junio 15 @ las 5 en la tarde

Esta clase nació de un deseo de reunir las personas que estén interesados ​​en viajar en bicicleta, pero han sido intimidados por ella (las exigencias físicas, la cultura de la bicicleta, lo que sea). Entonces vamos a reunir y HACERLO! Vamos a ir a los juegos alrededor de las ciudades, aprender sobre el mantenimiento de bicicletas, gira los recursos, hacer manualidades, y mucho más! La clase estará formada por los deseos de los participantes, así que vamos a decidir más adelante hasta qué punto vamos a ir, pero la idea es que la clase para culminar en una viaje de tres días / dos noches por bicicleta en esta zona. Queremos hacer hincapié en que esto es para todos, independientemente de su experiencia con las bicicletas.

Nuestras ideas de las clases semanales previos al viaje son:
- Reuniones semanales y paseos errantes en grupo
- excursiones en lugares agradables a bicicletas, como Sibley Depot de Bicicletas
- Los debates sobre cómo prepararse físicamente para un paseo en bicicleta
- Lección sobre la forma de arreglar un neumático desinflado + otros
- Planificar y diseñar un final de tres días / dos noches paseo.
- Aprende a hacer una pulsera del radio de una rueda.

No podemos proporcionar las bicicletas, por lo que recomendamos que usted posee (o pedir prestado) una bicicleta en buenas condiciones. (Vamos a tener un día de mantenimiento básico, por lo que no tiene que ser perfecto!)

Facilitator's experience: 
LIZ: I am an avid year-round cyclist, with multiple bike tours in the mix. I have gone on a tour every summer for the past four years. Past experiences include everything from overnight bike/camp trips to a month long national parks tour. JULIA: I have been biking as my primary transportation for as long as I can remember, but that was in California - this year was my first time as a winter biker in Minnesota! I interned at Sibley Bike Depot last year with their Youth Programs, and became versed in basic bike maintenance. I have been wanting to break into bike touring for a while, but have felt a little intimidated, so I figured I’d rope someone who has experience into teaching me, and thus this class came into being!
