Biking to school is a great transportation method for teens, until their chain comes off and they don’t know how to fix it.

To help teens learn how to handle such a scenario, the Seattle Public Library is hosting a free class on bicycle maintenance, as part of its Sound Cycling series.

Teens will get an overview of basic bicycle parts and learn about bicycle maintenance from Morgan Sherer of FamilyBike Seattle.

The free session is from NOON to 2PM on May 11 at the Capitol Hill Branch Library, located at 425 Harvard Avenue East.

Additional Sound Cycling series will be held at Seattle library locations throughout the summer, teaching the public how to use a bike as a healthy and economical means of transportation and perform basic bike maintenance.

For extra fun, participants can record the number of miles biked to work or school during the month of May for a chance to win prizes at the series finale. The Mileage Celebration will be held June 13 at the Northeast Branch, 6801 35th Ave. N.E.
