The Bicycle Exchange encourages people to learn how to repair and maintain bicycles.

Here are some of our learning resources

Learning by Doing

Our volunteers choose the bikes they fix. If you want to learn a particular repair procedure, we can help you find the project that meets your interests. We have mentors to demonstrate procedures and to guide you through the repair process. Our quality assurance volunteers carefully examine your project and provide feedback.

Mini Courses

Mini courses are not currently being offered. We are focusing on 1:1 instruction on bike repair projects by our mentors with feedback from our pre-qualification staff.

Repair Course Scholarships

The Bicycle Exchange offers scholarships to REI's Park Tool School. This is a day-long class that teaches how to adjust brakes, headsets, hubs, and drive trains, as well as how to true wheels. You may bring your own bike.
