WTFs of the Twin Cities, let's just take a moment to appreciate how fortunate we are to have so many cycling events and programs just for us...
I am happy to introduce yet another special program from Sibley Bike Depot:
Women and Trans Bike Maintenance Class
Details from Sibley:
The class will be similar to other beginning classes at Sibley Bike Depot, but is just for self-identified women, trans, gender queer, and other "not-dudes". In addition to basic bike repair, we will cover bike types and fit and discuss commuting and bicycles as transportation. Come learn how to fix your bike from a female mechanic in a fun and inclusive space.
Four Tuesdays in August, the 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st from 5:30 - 7pm.
Register online through the Experimental College
Sibley is located at 712 University in St. Paul, next to Saigon restaurant.
Our regular Women and Transgender Open Shop Night is Tuesdays from 6-9, so stay after class to keep wrenching!
Sign up, or spread the word!
Alicia is the facilitator of this class and is a very capable instructor. She also facilitates Tuesday Women and Transgender Night Open Shop at Sibley, so if you've been on one of our Tuesday group rides you've worked with Alicia.
One final word on EXCO, the Experimental College of the Twin Cities. If you like radical spaces and FREE education, you need to check out EXCO. The premise is that anyone can teach a class and anyone can take a class on any subject for free. I've taken quite a few classes from EXCO and the instructors and topics were really interesting and I've made a lot of friends from the classes. If you're really interested in how EXCO is redefining educational structure and institution, check out the website at EXCOtc.org, and contact them to get involved. They are a volunteer-run and -organized group and they are doing some truly radical, inspiring work.
