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 90 minutes of hands-on learning under the guidance of our professionally trained mechanics.
