Whether you want to do your own repairs or just understand what your mechanic is telling you, it’s always helpful to know a bit about bikes! This workshop will get you started with an easy introduction to bike mechanics.
You’ll learn about the different parts of the bicycle, how to assess a bicycle for needed repairs, and will get to practice fixing a flat tire – the most common problem we have with our bikes!
This workshop is being put on by the UTGSU and Bikechain, an on-campus educational bike repair space. In addition to workshops, we offer free bike rentals for students, run a do-it-yourself shop where you can learn to fix your own bicycle with the aid of experienced mechanics and provide employment and volunteer opportunities for students.
