Littles + Bigs Bike Mechanics Class

Even at a young age, knowing how to maintain and fix your bicycle is the BEST! Understanding basic bicycle maintenance and repair is a lifelong skill that gives you the knowledge, confidence, and independence to venture further and have more fun.

The Littles + Bigs program is part of the Solution’s educational series that offers two levels of bike mechanics basics (101, and 102) in an engaging 90-minute class for 1st-3rd graders and their favorites big person.
