Essential 10

Packing the “Ten Essentials” whenever you step into the backcountry, even on day hikes, is a good habit. On a basic trip you may use only a few of them or none at all. It’s when something goes awry that you’ll truly appreciate the value of carrying these items that could be essential to your survival.

Bike Shop Day

Bike Shop Day (www.bikeshopday.com) serves to connect the independent bike shop and our community as a beacon of inclusiveness, a healthy lifestyle and sustainable local business practices.

For this year's event (12/1/18), we are asking all participating shops and vendors to submit a proposal for an event that serves to welcome people who are underrepresented in the cycling industry.

“We had a much larger than anticipated platform when we launched Bike Shop Day in December 2017”, says 718 Cyclery Owner Joe Nocella.  “After the event, we decided that perhaps we can use this platform to help move the needle in the direction of diversity and inclusion in the cycling Industry”.

Bike Shops and Vendors from around the world who would like to participate are  encouraged to fill out the 2 minute form at www.BikeShopDay.com. Registration is free, and all Shops and Vendors will be listed on the website. All participating shops get a free sticker and postcard media pack and access to logo artwork to market further.

Womens Intensive Bike Maintenance Class Summer Session

Womens Intensive Bike Maintenance Class Summer Session

Overview:

The Women’s Bike Maintenance Intensive is a 3 part course designed to teach you the basics of how to take care of and fix your bike. It is designed to come after the “basic maintenance” course offered monthly, but it is not required to understand or enjoy this course. Classes are structured around an informal lecture with hands on practice. Feel free to bring your own bike to learn with. Classes are: July 10, 17, 24 // 7-9pm // 718 Cyclery.

Register Here

This is a workshop series for cis women, trans women, and gender non-comforming and non-binary folks only.

The series will be capped at 12-15 people, and you must commit to all three sessions. If you can’t commit to all three, please consider attending our regular Women’s and GNC Open Workshop on the last Wednesday of every month, or one of the all-gender workshops regularly held at the shop.

Class 01: “Brakes”  This class covers brakes and their adjustments. Learn how brakes work, what goes wrong, and how to fix them. We’ll learn how to fix brakes squeaking, getting stuck, or seeming too loose.

Class 02: “Gears and Derailleurs” This class covers everything you need to know about how gears work and how to fix common problems. We’ll learn about the basics of shifting systems, how derailleurs, gears, and chains work, and how to get rid of that weird clicking sound that happens when you shift.

Class 03: "Bearing Adjustments and Wheel Truing"  Slightly more advanced, this class is a great finale for our Basic Maintenance Series of classes. This class covers bearing adjustments (hubs, bottom brackets and headsets), as well as wheel truing.

About the Instructors:

  • A former mechanic at 718 Cyclery, Elori loves teaching people how bikes work and is a firm believer in the power of learning how to fix things yourself. When not working on bikes, she can be found making music, making films, and riding her skateboard.

  • 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.

  • Heather Meehan grew up riding her bike in circles around her parents' driveway on Long Island. She fell in love with bike touring during a 2015 ride with Sustainable Cycles and since then has embarked on a number of self-supported tours, most recently to Montreal. When she is not biking, Heather teaches healthy, seasonally-inspired cooking classes for youth through the organization Allergic to Salad.

  • El has lived and breathed bikes since 2011. Most critically, cycling introduced them to the thrills of doing things for oneself. In their recent move to NY pursuing an MSW, El fulfilled their long held dream to work as a shop mechanic. In addition to wrenching, El’s skills for surviving an apocalypse include empathic listening, cutting hair, and stick ‘n poke tattooing.

Bike Club

Bike Club is an immersive way to get involved with 718 Cyclery.  Doors open at 7:30am every Saturday for free coffee, home-made muffins and some great acoustic jams (just kidding on the jams). Sneak out of the house early to ask our staff that nagging question, throw your bike up in the stand for some free advice, or ask us about getting set up for our next trip/tour.  Think of it as open-office hours.

Sign Up Here

At 9:15, the Club will spin up to Prospect Park with a 718 Employee for a great ride around the park (weather permitting).  This is no-drop rides at a conversation pace, intended to foster community rather than fuel aggression. Helmets are required.

We do need you to sign up, so that we know how many muffins to bake.

Bike Club is:

  • Inclusive
  • Accessible
  • Informative
  • Tasty 
  • Free

Bike Club is not:

  • Aggressive
