Community ProgramsAdult Mechanic

Specifically geared for the 18+ crowd, this class provides students with an opportunity to get guided experience working on their own bikes under the instruction and guidance of experienced bicycle technicians.

The goal of this workshop is to provide concrete instruction and hands-on experience to empower the at-home mechanic. It is not intended to substitute for professional bike shop service, and payment of program fees does not guarantee that a student’s bike will be completely “tuned-up” or “overhauled” by the end of the course. Students may bring their own bikes, but may also use bikes provided by The Common Wheel for the hands-on portions of the program.

All community programs are held at our King Street location:

701 E. King Street, Lancaster, PA 17602

Eva is an experiential learner, so she wanted to really know the ins and outs of her bike and generally be more informed about her riding. “You don’t know what you don’t know.”
