WTN (Women, Trans, and Nonbinary) Night

FREE, every 2nd and 4th Wednesday, 6 – 8 pm, Donations appreciated!

This class welcomes women, trans, and non-binary individuals who want to grow their basic bicycle mechanics and maintenance skills. Acknowledging the barriers found in the bicycle industry, the classes are led by women and non-binary volunteers to provide a unique, safe space for participants to ask questions and practice skills either on their bicycles or those provided by Gearin’ Up. Class format is identical to the Basic Mechanics & Maintenance Class, with topics varying each week. WTN Nights also provide an opportunity to meet like-minded cyclists while improving basic bicycle mechanic skills.
