Classes at The Hub

Classes are held at the Hub’s 401 S Oak St (unless otherwise noted). Most classes are limited to three people, so students receive quality attention. Be sure to bring your bike and a set of clothes that you don’t mind getting greasy! See below for detailed descriptions and prices.

The Hub's Education Department is also officially recognized as a Park Tool School!

How to Sign Up:

Registration and waitlist for full classes are on our Eventbrite page

We require an adult (18 years old or older) to accompany those who are 15 years old and younger. The registration fee covers the bench you work at, meaning the adult can work on the same bike/project as the minor with same registration fee. Another registration is required if the adult would like to work on their own project/bike.
