Tutorials & Training
While many know how to ride a bicycle, not everyone knows how to properly maintain, operate, and drive them. Aggie Blue Bikes has set out to bring a quality array of educational opportunities to bring a new level of cycling knowledge and therefore cycling enjoyable. We offer three areas of education:
This level of instruction depends on the user and moves at the user's pace. If you want to learn how to lube your chain, we can help. If you want to learn how to overhaul your adjustable cup bottom bracket, we can help. If you want to learn how to strip your bike, paint it, overhaul everything, and come out with a completely different bike, we can help.
HOW TO SCHEDULE?
Come in during our normal business hours with your bike. Ask to be set up on one of our student tool boards. We will help you diagnose the problem and walk you through how to fix it!
These are the more formal, sit down, learn, and then do classes. They are taught by professionals in the community every week. They dive into a vast array of cycling-related topics from basic maintenance to overhaul, from commuting to touring, and from air quality to cycling safety.
League of American Bicyclists Courses
We offer League of American Bicyclists (LAB) courses at Aggie Blue Bikes! When there is sufficient interest in the more lengthy and in-depth LAB courses, we plan a weekend and offer the course taught by the League's Cycling Instructors.
If you are interested, email us and we will make the arrangements.
These educational videos and articles have information we feel is important for cyclists to know and live by. However, we did toss a few in for shear entertainment.
Articles are provided for thought. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Aggie Blue Bikes.
This article examines two differing thoughts among cyclists with regard to stop signs and the dichotomy that exists of being either "vehicularists" or "facilitators".
