April 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$35
We did not meet class minimums for this session – unfortunately, it has been cancelled.
Basic Bicycle Maintenance is an ONLINE CLASS via Zoom through Nashville Community Education.
KJ will be teaching as part of the Nashville Community Education series. This class is open to the general public, and registration is available through the Nashville Community Education website.
Learn how to take care of your two-wheeled freedom machine with 3 simple things you can do at home. Fixing a flat tire, cleaning and lubricating your chain and gears, and general bike cleaning can help keep you on a roll. Students will need tire levers, grease rag, degreaser, and bicycle specific chain lubricant. Registrants will be sent a list of suggested items.
Classes will be held online, in the comfort of your own home or office. This is a one-time, two hour class, and registration costs are $35. Follow up materials will be sent by email covering topics discussed in the class. Students are encouraged to send topic-specific questions prior to the class.

Think of this class as a YouTube video that talks back!
Students will have an opportunity to continue one-on-one assistance with KJ at a special NCE student rate.
Tire levers and bicycle specific chain lubricant can be purchased at local bicycle shops (support your local bike shop! but also, CALL AHEAD to make sure they have items in stock); degreasers can be something like Simple Green or Dawn dish detergent, easily obtainable at the grocery store; grease rags should have as smooth a nap as possible (old t-shirts work great).
