Winter Bike Maintenance explains the basics of keeping your bike working safely when you ride in winter conditions. These tips will save you time, money, and make your rides easier and safer. This free class is NOT a hands-on session, but a way to learn how cold, slush, ice, salt and de-icing chemicals can affect your bike and what you can do to prevent any lasting damage.

    We typically do two 45 minute sessions a day, but if you would like to host an expanded schedule, please let us know in the message box below.
    I understand that this class can be held for my group at any of Bike New York’s Community Bike Education Centers, where loaner bikes & helmets are available. But to hold this class at a location I arrange, Bike New York can NOT provide bikes and helmets. Every participant must have their own properly fitting and safely working bike & helmet.
