WTF July Happy Hour Tune Up Class

Friday evenings July 10, 17, 24 6-8:30pm

* This class is open to all women, transfolks, genderqueer folk, femmes, and other people who've had gender bias, homophobia, or transphobia keep them away from the wrenches!

*Class will be hands-on, so bring a bike and get ready to get greasy. Over the 3 weeks, it will cover what is included in a basic shop tune-up: installing and removing tubes and tires (i.e. fixing a flat), installing brake and shift cables, adjusting brakes and gears, chain maintenance, truing wheels, etc.

* No previous knowledge about bikes is required or expected. But a willingness to learn and have fun is a must!

* It will be limited to 10 people, and will be held at the Bike Kitchen, which has recently moved to 650H Florida St.

* The fee for this class is on a sliding scale, $40-90 for current Bike Kitchen members, or $80-130 for non Bike Kitchen members; non-members receive a 1 year membership with class registration.

* Refund Policy: due to limited resources, no refunds, or re-scheduling can be offered. If you are unable to attend a paid class, your new membership is still valid and you are welcome to visit us during regular shop hours and speak to our staff mechanics

Grizzly Road (excerpt) Sabrina Alonso, 9 min
Gracing the California state flag is the grizzly bear. It is estimated that 10,000 grizzly bears once roamed the golden state. The call of Manifest Destiny for westward expansion sealed the great bear's fate. "Grizzly Road" is a feature documentary exploring not only the lonely path of the California Grizzly’s extinction, but the fate of the California landscape.
