Time Out New York

A broken steed doesn’t have to stay off the streets: Experts from cycling-advocate organization Time’s Up teach two weekly beginners’ classes that’ll get you back in the saddle in no time. Over four sessions, you’ll learn how to fix a flat, adjust the braking system, true a wheel and more. Volunteer instructors will demonstrate more complex maintenance, while you can try simpler tasks—like fixing an inner tube—yourself, with materials provided free of charge (although donations are encouraged). The Brooklyn location also runs a women- and trans-only session on Mondays (6:30–8:30pm). 156 Rivington St between Clinton and Suffolk Sts, basement. Tue 6:30–8:30pm • 99 South 6th St between Bedford Ave and Berry St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Sun 4–6pm; women and transgender class Mon 6:30–8:30pm. • times-up.org
