Build your own bike and support our program!
"Gave me confidence, tools, and lots of experienced advice to do something that'd be much harder on my own"- Tim, Adult Class Participant
Our Adult Build-A-Bike Workshops occur seasonally: spring, summer, fall, winter.
For a fee of $300, participants participate in a six week workshop (a total of twelve hours), working to rebuild, part by part, a quality bicycle provided by us. Under guidance from our experienced staff, you will learn the inner workings of the bike and gain a better understanding of how to maintain your bike. This makes for a better relationship with a bike that is longer-lasting, along with the pride that comes with having rebuilt your own bike from the frame up. Yes, ALL participants keep their bicycle!
Proceeds from these workshops go back to the Oasis Earn-A-Bike program. This insures we can continue providing quality programming that builds confidence, empowers youth by developing a skill set, gets teens outside, promotes good health, and often provides a means of transportation to work and school.
*we will not be fabricating bicycle frames nor will we be building wheels (there will be no welding involved). You will, however, have the opportunity to custom build your bike from the frame up using parts, components and hardware from our workshop. We will cover wheel truing (balancing).
Each bicycle comes with a custom head badge that identifies it uniquely as an Oasis Bike Workshop bike.
