Would you like to learn how to repair or maintain bikes for no charge?  Learn to work on your own bike in our fully equipped workshop, the first bike repair workshop on campus for MSU Bikes.  If you’re a current MSU student, faculty or on MSU staff you can develop bike mechanical skills from our experienced volunteer instructors (who work for MSU). The classes  and hours for the Demonstration Hall workshop are on Thursdays 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.  Layne Cameron is the volunteer coordinator and lead instructor of the sessions.

Note: Due to limited space and tools, we are limiting each session to four people. Use this online scheduler to sign up for a session that doesn’t already have four people signed up.

If no one is signed up on the Doodle for a session then assume that the shop will NOT be open.  Go at your own risk.  In other words, if you want to be able to get in and work on bikes then make sure you get your name on the Doodle scheduler!

Sign-up on our MSU Bikes Volunteer Google group to be sure and get alerts about cancellations and news about the workshop and other volunteer opportunities/ events on or near campus.
