Bike repair and mechanics classes
TEACHING THE KNOW-HOW YOU NEED TO KNOW
Thanks to the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham for making our Bike Mechanics Classes possible.
At Redemptive we try to bring the utilitarian aspect back into cycling. There's nothing more important when getting a bike than knowing how to maintain it! Check it out:
Beginners Bike Basics Class
