Women's Bike Maintenace Class: Bike Demystification, Basic Maintenance, and Flat Fixing

Get to know a little more about your machine in this hands-on introductory workshop, and walk away feeling more self-sufficient. This class will cover routine bike maintenance, the tools you should never leave home without, and how to fix a flat, with plenty of time to ask questions.

About the Instructor:
Where bicycles are concerned, Meredith's heart is in the liberating power of the riding, and working on, of all types of bikes for all types of people, on any surface and in any weather. She teaches project-based mathematics at a public high school in Manhattan for recent immigrants, where she also facilitates an after-school bike mechanics and cycling program.

Transportation Alternatives Winter Cycling Event

718 Cyclery in Gowanus is dear to our hearts. For the past few years 718 has been an asset to the cycling community. From shop rides to races to classes 718 has gone above and beyond what we expect from a local bike shop. But a bike is only as enjoyable as the road or trail you  ride it on.

That’s why 718 Cyclery is collaborating with us on our new Bike Shop Membership Partner program. As a proud supporter of Transportation Alternatives and safe streets, 718 Cyclery will now be offering a free year of TransAlt membership with every bicycle purchased. Awesome!

To celebrate, we’re having an event on Wednesday, November 16th at 7 pm. We’ll have Brooklyn Brewery beer, snacks, and a presentation on winter cycling and "#bikenyc in 2016. To sweeten the pot, anyone who joins as a TransAlt member at the event will be entered into raffle to win a Blaze Laser Light.

Please RSVP here for the event, as space is limited.
