We offer a variety of educational classes and weekly group rides, FREE to all!
Group rides, every week 5:30p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
All level mountain bike rides meet at the Cycle Learning Center every Monday at 5:30 p.m. and head for the foothills for a 1.5–2 hour ride. As a new rider, you can learn trail technique, trail-side maintenance, and get an orientation to the Boise front trail system. More seasoned riders will love the fitness opportunity, as well as having fun on fast single track!
*These rides go from the beginning of fall semester in August until Daylight Savings Time in the fall and start back up again in late March until end of spring semester in May.
Bike Maintenance Classes
Free Bicycle Maintenance Workshop every first Wednesday 12p.m. – 1 p.m.
Are bike troubles keeping you from riding your bike to Boise State? Are you nervous about using your bike for transportation because you are afraid it might break down and leave you stranded? Or, are you already using your bike regularly and would like to get more adept at doing your own maintenance and repairs?
Lunch Shift classes will teach you everything from the basics of emergency roadside repairs, lubing your drive train, fixing flat tires and adjusting brakes and derailleurs. Open and free to all — brown bag lunches welcome!
This course will focus on the experiential practice of bicycle repair through a hands-on process of understanding the parts and functions of the bike as well as the tools used to adjust them.
This comprehensive exploration of the bicycle will leave participants with marketable skills to assemble, diagnose, and repair bicycles for personal hobby or professional employment.
