This four-week class will cover the basics to keep your bicycle in good condition and handle most repairs by yourself. This includes understanding the parts of a bike and how they work together, getting to know common tools and what you’ll need to get started, and actually getting your hands greasy with routine repairs. This class with Wallingford resident, Jared Liu, will meet in the Collaboratory on Thursdays in October from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Please only sign-up if you can attend all four sessions. Because it’s limited to 10 people, preference will be given to those who commit to spreading the knowledge and helping others in town with their bicycle needs.
