From time to time, mostly during the early and later winter/ early spring, we offer free bike-related classes covering various aspects of bicycling.  If you want to know when the classes are happening, as well as other bike-related events on or near campus, watch our shop’s Facebook page and/or subscribe to our Yahoo group.

Would you like to learn how to repair or maintain bikes for no charge?  Learn to work on your own bike in our fully equipped workshop, the first bike repair workshop on campus for MSU Bikes.  If you’re a current MSU student, faculty or on MSU staff you can develop bike mechanical skills from our experienced volunteer instructors (who work for MSU). The classes  and hours for the Demonstration Hall workshop are on Thursdays 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.  Layne Cameron is the volunteer coordinator and lead instructor of the sessions.

Note: Due to limited space and tools, we are limiting each session to four people.  Please contact Layne Cameron (the shop coordinator and on staff with MSU CABS) to sign up for a session.

Sign-up on our MSU Bikes Volunteer Google group to be sure and get alerts about cancellations and news about the workshop and other volunteer opportunities/ events on or near campus.
