    Commonwheels' Season of Earn A Bikes Classes Begins!

    Our first session of the Women's Earn A Bike program has begun! The group meets every Tuesday and is the first of what will be six Earn A Bike classes held by Commonwheels this winter. There will be a second session of the Women's Earn A Bike Program and four community-based Earn A Bike classes for residents at Brian J Honan, Faneuil Gardens, Fidelius Way, and Brighton Allston Apartments. We are so excited to be able to offer this resource to the community with our partners at Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation and the Josephine A. Fiorentino Community Center at Charlesview.

    The classes serve as a launching point for participants to begin learning bicycle maintenance and to integrate biking into their lifestyle. In addition to mechanical skills, classes include information about traffic safety, the history of biking and bike advocacy, and discussions about biking. At the completion of the course, each participant will leave with a working bike, a helmet, a bike lock, lights, and resources on how to maintain the bike going forward.
