Kids Fix it!
A basic maintenance class for children
Age: 5-8 yrs* with one adult per child
BICAS is excited to offer a 2 hour class geared toward teaching some basic tune-up skills on a standard kid’s bicycle. Each registration includes one child (5-8 yrs) and one accompanying adult (children must attend with an adult). Students may bring one child’s bike from home to work on, or, alternatively, they may purchase a child’s bike in our shop to work on and take home. If repairs exceed the topics covered in class, your instructors can make assessments & recommendations for using our Community Tools area to make further fixes.
Class topics include:
- Brake test
- Oiling a chain
- ABC quick check (pre-ride safety check)
- Proper helmet fitting
*Please note that this class does not cover component installations, including cables, seats, chains, etc., due to the need to keep the class on-schedule in a short time frame. However, students are welcome to sign into BICAS’ Community Tools after class to make any further repairs.
This class is offered by request. If you have a group of 4-8 children (ages 5-8) and parents, please contact us and we will be happy to schedule a class especially for your group! Email us at Education@bicas.org.
**Kids Fix It is designed for school-aged children; BICAS does not currently have any classes for children under 5 &/or pre-schoolers. For youth ages 8-18 please click here: BICAS Youth Programs.
