We offer Earn-a-Bike programs for children (5-9), youth (10-15) and adults (16+). Kids’ Bike Club runs every Saturday from 11AM-12PM.  Students attend 4 classes that introduce bike maintenance and safe riding concepts.  After completing 4 classes, students earn a free bike and helmet. Youth Earn-a-Bike classes run every Wednesday and Thursday from 5-7PM. Students attend any 6 classes. Each class includes instruction on basic bike maintenance and safe riding skills and guided time fixing up a bike. After 6 classes, students take home the bike they fixed up along with a free lock, helmet and a lot of new skills! Adult Earn-a-Bike runs concurrently with Open Shop. In exchange for volunteering at the shop for 5-10 hours and paying a small fee to cover supplies (financial assistance available), individuals can choose out a bike and refurbish it with the help of a volunteer mechanic. After overhauling the bike, participants get both a bike and the know-how to keep it rolling smoothly. Stop by the shop during Open Shop hours to register.
