About This Activity

For girls who enjoy riding bikes and are interested in diving deeper into the mechanical side of the bicycle, we offer a space to empower them with basic knowledge of how bikes work and how to fix them. Guest instructors include our bike shop’s very own rock star mechanics. This camp is designed to give middle school students a better understanding of how their bikes work and how to assess mechanical issues both in the shop and on the road. Campers will split their time between hands-on mechanical projects and going on group rides. The week includes field trips to visit key players in Portland’s bicycle economy. Not only will campers have fun outdoors on their bikes, but they’ll build the skills they need to be independent stewards of their ride! Girls’ Mechanics Camp is limited to 10 campers per session for a better learning environment. Skills they will develop: • Completing sharp turns • Riding down a hill fast while in total control of the bike • Understanding right of way • Navigating and riding in traffic: signaling or communicating with other road users, taking the lane, etc. • Troubleshooting problems and communicating effectively with a mechanic
