Classes/Workshops/Seminars at the Bike Kitchen

Bicycles are a fun, inexpensive, and healthy way to get around, but it’s a fact of life that maintenance is required to keep them running smoothly and safely. At the Bike Kitchen, everyday folks can come in and take a class, a workshop or a seminar on basic bike maintenance. Whether you’re a beginner or a fairly experienced mechanic, we cover all aspects and levels of bike repair and maintenance.

The Wrench-Up! program is 6 hours of training broken up into two sessions. These are small group classes (maximum 5 students), socially distanced, no tool sharing and masks mandatory. The course is $85 and includes use of all tools and ongoing support. If this is an economic challenge for you, please let us know and we’ll help you out.

The next Wrench-Up! session will be Sunday August 1 4pm – 7pm and Monday August 2 4pm – 7pm. Email john@bikewindsoressex.com for more information

We are committed to building a culturally diverse bicycle community. We strongly encourage minority, non-binary, trans and female folks to register for our classes, and we frequently host WTF* (Women/Trans/Femme/etc.) specific courses. Check out the calendar for more info.

Wrench-Up!: Youth and Seniors Small Group Classes

We offer YOUTH ONLY (14+) and SENIORS ONLY programs that can be scheduled for small groups.

If you have a youth group or seniors group that would be interested, contact john@bikewindsoressex.com to discuss details and dates and times for your group.

The Bike Kitchen gratefully accepts donations of bicycles for refurbishing and eventual return to the community.
