April 17, 2022: NEW - Saturdays! The shop will now also be open Saturdays from 11am - 3pm for bike sales, parts sales, and donations. These new hours will be in effect until at least July.

April 15, 2022: We now carry new locks and lights! The locks are the usual U-lock style, and we offer the basic lock and also the same one with additional loop cable. The lights are small, basic blink style. Not very good for trail riding, but they'll help you stay visible on city streets.

April 3, 2022: We are now on Spring/Summer hours. Please see our Location/Hours page. For now DIY bike repair is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings by online appointment only.

March 21, 2022: We are asking that you still wear a mask when visiting our shop. The staff you meet during our evenings are volunteers, and they've kept volunteering through this pandemic because they've felt it's reasonably safe to do so. We'd like to keep the feeling of safety for a little while yet, so please bear with us. Many thanks for your understanding.

Feb. 7, 2022 - DIY repair is making its gradual return! It is offered on Thursday night each week, with a workstation, tools, and guidance available at $6 per hour. Advance booking in is required. There are two individual stations, with two one-hour time slots available for each station (6-7pm and 7-8pm). A limited supply of parts are available for sale at an additional cost. Book online via Picktime. DIY customers will be required to show proof of vaccination to staff (paper copy or digital, 2-3 doses) and complete a quick symptom survey prior to entry. Masks are mandatory at all times. Clients will be asked to be mindful, and respect their scheduled time in the shop.

Bikes are still for sale ONLY during evening hours or Saturday afternoons. Masks indoors are mandatory. You can also donate bikes and parts to us any time we are open, evenings or afternoons.
