Learn by doing
The best way to learn how to do something is by teaching it. The Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition hosts a Bicycle Exchange every second Saturday of the month in Mountain View.
If you’re starting out in cycling, or aren’t comfortable doing basic repairs by yourself, the Bicycle Exchange is a great place to learn. You can volunteer to help more experienced volunteers fix and repair bikes.
Since it takes place in Mountain View, you can also get a good ride in. You can take the Caltrain one trip and ride back the other way. It’s $4.25 one way to Mountain View from the Diridon Station or vice versa. The event starts at 10am to 3pm this Saturday (11/14). Caltrain Schedule Remember to look at the weekend schedule.

If you already know the basics, it’s time to start racing. iMD is sponsoring a race in the southside of San Jose. Peep the flier.
