Taught by Linus Owen-Garni, Ken Kaye, and Dale McKeel

Clean Energy Durham is seeking committed individuals who enjoy hands-on projects to be trained as “Bicycle Transportation Trainers”:  Volunteers who help teach their neighbors bicycle maintenance and commuting techniques.  Participants will be limited to eight people from the following neighborhoods:  Burch Ave, Cleveland Holloway, Duke Park, Lyon Park, Old West Durham, Trinity Park, Watts-Hillandale, and West End.

Clean Energy Durham will provide trainees 12 hours of training in six sessions during the first and third Wednesdays of the month beginning January 19th from 6 to 8 pm.  The sessions are hands-on and taught by skilled professionals.  Each trainee will be provided with the necessary supplies during the course and given a free Park Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair ($25 MSRP) as a gift.  Trainees must be able to attend all sessions.  Classes will be located at the Bike Co-op at 715 Washington Street (around back).   Additionally, trainees have the opportunity to hone and share their skills during the Bike Co-op’s open shop hours.

Clean Energy Durham will help all trainees organize a bicycle clinic in their neighborhood by June 30th where the Bicycle Transportation Trainers will have the opportunity to teach their neighbors about bicycle maintenance and safety.
