2nd Annual Beginner Bicycle Maintenance Series

The New Brunswick Bike Exchange is hosting another bicycle maintenance
series! This time, participants will learn about bicycle systems by
rehabilitating one of the Bike Exchange’s donated bikes. Participants will
also be encouraged to bring their own bikes to learn about how to do their
own repairs and maintenance.

The series will take place over six sessions, held on Tuesdays from
6:15-7:45 (with time after for cleanup), from May 10th to June 14th at our
shop (90 Jersey Avenue in New Brunswick). An additional session may be
added if needed. The cost for the series is $15, donated to PRAB.
Participants should wear clothes they can get dirty. You will not need
tools, although discussions of suggested tools will occur during the class.

Please register for the class by sending an e-mail to
*info@nbbikeexchange.org* with your name, phone number, and preferred
e-mail address. *CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED*, so register early; those who are
not pre-registered may be closed out.

Our hours this season will be as follows:
Tuesdays, 6-8pm
Thursdays, 5-8pm
Saturdays, 10am-1pm

Check back often to see what are we upto!

If you want to get involved in the Bike Exchange there are a couple ways of doing so:

  • Organize and/or host a bike drive in your community, workplace, church, softball league, or anywhere else. If you’re willing to put the word out to your community, we will provide support for the drive including brochures, fliers, and transportation for the donated bikes back to our warehouse.
  • Get involved through volunteering in our shop, located in the warehouse at PRAB’s 90 Jersey Avenue facility. No mechanic experience is necessary and there is a wide variety of volunteer roles. We need all types of volunteers, including cashiers, salespeople, accountants, mechanics, and bike drive coordinators.  Check out our Volunteering page for more details.

Have any more questions? Send us an email at info@nbbikeexchange.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. If you want to host a bike drive, contact us at drives@nbbikeexchange.org.
