Currently enrolled students eligible for open wheel time are defined as those who have completed the first two classes in their entirety until they reach the end of their 4 week course).

Each 2-hour open wheel time includes up to 1 hour 45 minutes on the wheel plus 15 minutes active clean up to leave your space sparkly clean for the next person using the wheel.
