BICYCLE MAINTENANCE CLASSES

LEARN THE ART OF BICYCLE MAINTENANCE

Bicycle Garage Indy bicycle maintenance classes teach you the skills that you need to service and repair all of the essential moving parts on your bike before a ride and on the go. Each session includes two hours of hands-on learning under the guidance of our experienced mechanics.

Our Bicycle Maintenance 101 is ideal for riders who would like to learn basic care for their bicycle. More experienced riders will benefit from our four 200 Level classes, during which you’ll learn to clean, adjust, lubricate, and install the components and parts necessary to keep your bike rolling smoothly for years to come.
