Biking and Hiking With Princeton Adult School

Thursday, September 6 by silvia

Zaitz Preserve WalkPrinceton Adult School’s fall course list includes several sports and outdoor recreation classes, including a “learn to bike” class for adults, a bicycle repair and maintenance class, hiking in New Jersey and more.

The “learn to bike” class, taught by the founder of Bike Exchange, comprises four one-hour classes on Saturday mornings.

The four-session bike maintenance class will be held at Harts Cyclery on Route 31 in Pennington.

The hiking class will take participants to four different areas of the state on Saturdays. There’s also a separate class that spends an October morning exploring the woods at the Institute of Advanced Study with a professor who has studied the woods for more than 40 years.

Details on all courses are on the Princeton Adult School website.

Got the Bike, Now to Maintain It

Sunday, January 1 by silvia

Bike Clinic

Jerry teaches a cyclist how to true his wheels.

Whether you’ve just  received (or given) a bike or have resolved to ride the one you already have more frequently, proper maintenance will help make cycling more enjoyable.

Here are two area classes that will help you learn to do just that:

Mercer County Community College’s continuing education program offers a three-session class starting Jan. 18 at Bernie’s Bicycle Shop in Hamilton. Cost is $59, plus a repair manual (approximately $20). You’ll learn how to clean, lubricate and adjust/repair major components. Look here, then turn to page 54.

If you just want a 45-minute class on how to fix a flat tire and lubricate it, Knapps has a class every month for $10.
