Adult Classes

We have an in-person class coming up:

Women & Non-Binary Roadside Repair class on Dec 9!

If this class time doesn't work for you, fear not! All maintenance and riding classes will be resuming in April 2022. In the meantime, here are some other great riding and maintenance resources:

Riding:

  • Marley Blonsky- local bike adventurer who hosts in-person and virtual classes about city riding and biking, especially for bigger bodied folks
  • Brian Watson- local LCI instructor who teaches one-on-one or group riding classes for all ability levels
  • LCI Instructors- the League of American Bicyclists certifies bike instructors all around the country- find an instructor or advocacy organization in your area!
  • Cycling Savvy- an online urban riding skills program by the American Bicycling Education Association. We cannot recommend this course highly enough!

Maintenance:

  • Bike Works- an awesome bike non-profit located in Columbia City, currently offering in-person maintenance classes
  • Sharing Wheels- a community bike shop in Everett offering great beginner maintenance classes
  • The Bikery- a volunteer-run bike space where you can donate to use their fix-it stands and tools. Great for riders who would like to work on their own repairs but would like a guiding hand if they get stuck. :)

Lastly, check out or Tips for Biking page that includes all of our favorite websites and videos for riding and maintenance tips and tricks!

Let us know if you have any questions or if you know of any in-person classes that should be added to this list- amyk@cascade.org.
