The classes will cover the following topics, divided into three levels:
- Introductory: Brakes and speed adjustment, repairing and changing a tube
- Intermediate: Wheel and steering bearings, changing a spoke and truing a wheel
- Advanced: Hydraulic brakes and gear shifters
These programs are indicative, and free to evolve depending on the interests and skills of the subgroups.
These are generally co-ed classes, but this year we are also running some classes taught by women for women. These classes are intended to encourage sharing and to help women help each other. The goal is to create a friendly atmosphere for all and to give participants who might otherwise feel nervous about asking questions an opportunity to speak freely.
These classes cover the introductory level. But as with the regular classes, the content will be adjusted according to the questions and feedback received from participants.
