Are you a new eBike owner? Are you considering purchasing an eBike in the near future? This class on ebike safety and maintenance is designed to help new eBike owners get the most out of their eBikes! This class will teach you about eBike safety, maintenance, and best practices so that you can experience your eBike as a truly functional, fun and freeing mode of transportation!
Introduction to eBike Safety and Maintenance is a free, hands-on, and interactive course offered through a partnership between Small Planet Ebikes and Community Cycles. In this class, experienced (and fun!) eBike mechanics will introduce new and prospective eBike owners to eBike systems (how eBikes work), eBike regulations, battery safety, best practices for eBike and battery maintenance, and riding practices specific to eBikes. Students should leave this class feeling confident about using and maintaining their new eBikes, and ready to take advantage of all the ways eBikes improve the wellbeing of not only individual owners but also the community.
There are no knowledge prerequisites for this course. Having a basic understanding of bicycle terminology is great, but not necessary. Everyone is welcome in this class. We want to spread the joy of e-cycling!
We encourage students to bring their own eBikes to the class, but do not feel that you must already own an eBike to attend. However, do remember that this class is not about eBike purchasing. For more information about eBike purchasing, see the linked resources below.
