Location: 
99 South 6th Street, Brooklyn off Bedford Avenue, right under th e Williamsburg Bridge

Come learn the basics of bicycle repair from female mechanics at our workshop designed by and for women.
The first class of every month focuses on the basics: Identifying parts and tools, diagnosing common problems and things you should know before buying a bike. We will also cover how to change tires and fix flats. Classes are free and open to all levels of experience and expertise. There's no need to do the classes in order, or go to the beginner's class before any others. As always, people can use the tools to repair their own bikes, though they cannot expect guidance for the mechanics. People who want to work on their own bikes and need the help of a mechanic should come to the Open Workshop every Thursday nite. Workshops may last shorter than 2 hours
