Mechanic Training Sessions

Thank you for your interest in signing up for a Mechanic Training Session! We are training mechanics every Thursday evening from July 18 through Sept. 26 (except August 8) from 7:00p-8:30p in our warehouse at 411 Piquette Ave. in Detroit. Your new skills will not only help us to repair 3,000 bikes for kids in our community this year, but they will also improve your ability to work on your own bike. Sessions will be focused on various skills from changing tires, saddles, pedals, grips, cables and housing, to working on brakes and adjusting a derailleur or a headset. You can bring your own bike if you’d like, but we’ll have some bikes to work on as well. Tools and a bike repair stand are provided by FB4K Detroit, but feel free to bring your own if you have them. 



In consideration of my desire to serve as a volunteer for Free Bikes 4 Kidz – Detroit I hereby assume all responsibility for any and all risk of property damage or bodily injury that I may sustain while participating in any voluntary event or other activity of any nature.

Further, I, for myself and my heirs and assigns, hereby release and discharge Free Bikes 4 Kidz – Detroit and its officers, directors, employees and volunteers of and from any and all claims which I may have against any of the above arising in connection with such volunteer efforts or my participation therein, and hereby waive all such claims, demands and causes of action.

Further, I expressly agree that this release, waiver and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the State of Michigan, and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

Also, I hereby grant permission to Free Bikes 4 Kidz – Detroit to use my likeness, whether through the use of photographs, film, videotape, or other media, for promotional and marketing purposes.

I currently have no known mental or physical condition that would impair my capability for full participation as intended or expected of me.

Further, I have carefully read the foregoing release and indemnification and understand the contents thereof and sign this release as my own, free act.
