Bike-ology Program

Bike-ology Program

Bike-ology is a free Arc service where students teach students all about bike repair and maintenance. Students can bring their busted bicycle in, are given tips and tricks in bicycle maintenance, with hands-on experience with bicycle tools and repairs.

Responsibilities

Volunteers will get a chance to run workshops and one-on-one tutorials showing students how to fix and maintain their bikes. They also offer educational programs, events, and trainings for students that promote biking as part of a wider sustainable-lifestyle choice.
