Bike Repair Classes

Our second annual bike repair class series will begin Saturday, 2/23. All classes will run from 8am to 12 noon so the shop will not open until after class. Shop rides will continue uninterrupted, leaving from the shop every Saturday morning at 7:45ish.

Each class will cost $60 or you can purchase the entire series of 4 for $200. Class size is limited to 6 each and if there is enough demand, additional classes can be added.

Payment is required in advance and you can call it in or stop by. Email Kevin (kevin@hiawathacyclery.com) with any questions or to reserve your spot. These filled up in a matter of days last year so don't hesitate and sign up now.
