Yippie! Let's ride bikes! Maybe at the Glow Ride on Friday? Or during an upcoming Bike Night? That's right, B!KE is creating events where you can get out and ride on that freshly maintained bike.
Because it's spring, this newsletter is jam-packed with things you probably want to know about. New hours, new programs, new staff, and a delighting announcement to cap it all off!
More time to fix then ever before!
Join us on your lunch hour or after work. We have lots of instructed shop time for you to learn DIY bike repair. Come in soon for a spring tune up!
Shifting the norm on DIY
Mechanical spaces are typically male dominated. B!KE is working to radically shift this by a creating women-only bike repair space. We invite all women-identified people to come out and enjoy this chance to learn together. Every Thursday from 10-4! Please share!
