Class Offerings

Basics of Better Bicycling (novice to intermediate)

Looking to start cycling for transportation or fitness? Sixty percent of Americans are interested but concerned about bike commuting. We can calm those concerns. This two hour class will save you two years of trial-and-error! You don’t even need a bike for this intro class. Arrive ready to learn for this classroom style session.

Bike Skills for Women (novice to intermediate)

Women represent 51% of the US population and 43% of people riding bikes.  This course is tailored for women to address theories relating to fashion, fear, and economics. This three hour class consists of a one hour classroom workshop covering topics such as how to fix a flat, pre-ride checklist, and rules of the road.  We then spend two hours in an outdoor skills clinic where students hone their bike handling skills on their own bikes. Please bring a bicycle in good working order, a helmet, and appropriate footwear.

Parking Lot to Peloton (novice to intermediate)

Nervous about that first big tour or charity cycling event? This class will prepare you for the experience starting from the parking lot to get you and your bike ready to confidently roll on to the roadways with a group in just two hours. Please bring a bicycle in good working order, a helmet, and appropriate footwear.

Group Riding 201 (advanced)

Now you want to ride confidently in the group. Why do some groups roll so tightly, safely and confidently while others are all over the road? It comes down to about 10 principles handed down from European clubs that many experienced riders never learn. Please bring a bicycle in good working order, a helmet, and appropriate footwear.

Intro to Racing (advanced)

Ready to rip? Climbing, cornering, and sprinting are just some of the skills taught in this clinic. This class also harps on staying safe at any speed. There will be discussion on training, diet, and tactics. Even if you never pin on a number this class can vastly improve any rider's skill set. Please make sure to bring a bicycle in good working order, a helmet, and appropriate footwear. This class will include instruction both on and off the bike.

    Brake and Derailleur Systems Workshop

    Join us and Speed and Sprocket for a clinic on the two cable systems of your bicycle: your brakes and your shifters/derailleurs! These two systems are essential for a properly functioning bicycle, and we'll help you understand how they work.

    During this workshop we'll discuss and cover the following:
    -Basic principles of cable systems
    -The differences between your brake and shifting systems
    -Proper derailleur set-up
    -Proper brake set-up
    -Evaluation of systems for wear and replacement
    -Adjusting both systems to achieve maximum possible performance
    -Proper replacement of cables and housing

    **Because this is a more technically focused class, enrollment is limited to 10 participants.**

    Other important details:
    -Your ticket includes cable and housing replacements, if necessary
    -We will provide work stands and tools; you just need to bring your bike!
    -Please make sure your bike is clean and ready to be worked on, as cleaning will NOT be covered during this class. Visit out Clinics page (http://www.speedandsprocket.com/clinics.html) to find a class which teaches "Bike Cleaning and General Maintenance." If you'd like us to clean it for you, let us know beforehand and we can do so that morning for an additional $15 charge.


    **Please note that this class is for traditional cable systems, NOT for electronic drivetrains or hydraulic brakes! If you ride with either, feel free to enroll, but know that they will not be covered**

    Send any questions you have to us at Sean@SpeedandSprocket.com
