Welcome to Free Ride!

Now Running Tuesdays and Sundays, Adult Mechanic’s Classes!

Basic Classes – Pre-registration

We offer a beginner’s Adult Basic Bike Mechanics Class series covering the basic systems of the bicycle.  The course is six weeks, giving each students 12 hours of class time.  By paying for the full series in advance, you save $20, the cost of one class.

Basic Classes – Drop-In 

We offer hands-on bicycle mechanic classes on 6 topics, on a class-by-class basis.  Drop-in classes are a nice option for those folks who want to learn about specific repairs, like adjusting brakes or truing a wheel. No advanced registration is required, so just drop on in!  Check the calendarfor more details on which classes are available when.

Free Ride is a bicycle recycling and education facility focused on teaching the do-it-yourself approach to bicycle repair and maintenance. There is that old saying “if you give a person a mango they will eat for one day but if you teach them how to fish they will eat for a lifetime.” That is our basic philosophy at Free Ride.
