FREE Bicycle Maintenance & Safety Training

December 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm Leave a comment

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.  This free class will be limited to ten people from south Durham neighborhoods:  West End, Lyon Park, Morehead Hill, Lakewood Park, Tuscaloosa-Lakewood, Forest Hills, Rockwood, Hope Valley, Hope Valley Farms, Woodcroft & Parkwood.

Clean Energy Durham will provide trainees 14 hours of training in seven sessions during the first and third Tuesdays of the month (beginning Jan 17th).  The sessions are hands-on and taught by skilled professionals.  Each trainee will be provided with the necessary supplies and bike maintenance & safety pamphlet during the course.  Trainees must be able to attend all sessions.

In return for this training, trainees will be expected to organize bike-related activities in their neighborhood by June 30th. Examples include:

  • host a bicycle clinic
  • start a group bike ride
  • lead a bike safety workshop
  • be a bike mentor for a beginner commuter

Clean Energy Durham will help all trainees organize their neighborhood events.

Classes will be located at the Durham Bike Co-op at 715 Washington Street (around back, lower level).   Additionally, trainees will be asked to provide additional 10 volunteer hours at the Durham Bike Co-op, which will allow them to hone and share their skills.
