MECHANICS MINI

Our mini classes focus on one bite-size mechanics topic at a time and are exclusively held at our Denver location. Show up to learn new skills and connect with other people who like bikes as much as you do! It's a low stake, come as you are class. No previous knowledge required. 

These offerings are pay-as-you-can. We don't want cost to be a barrier to education. It's simple: you pick your price from $0 to our estimated value per session. 

These minis are meant to give you the same "I can do this bike stuff" energy that our interns experience, no matter where you're starting from. For anyone who has felt excluded, intimidated, or uncomfortable in the bike shop setting: this one's for you! We hope you'll walk away with a new skill and a feeling of empowerment and belonging.
