Hello pedal pusher,

We are loving spring. Its so energizing to have people filling the shop. B!KE is averaging over 35 repairs a day right now! We really appreciate how supportive and patient the community has been in the process of getting all the bikes back on the road. We hope to see you again soon either in the shop, out on the trail, or at one of our many upcoming events!

Free Community Cycling Courses

 

Its that time of year when we partner up with Shifting Gears and GreenUP to offer you a bunch of free maintenance and riding skills courses!  Spaces are limited, register to save your spot. 

Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their financial support of our community education courses. 

Community Shifting Gears

Its that time of year when you register for Shifting Gears and commit to making even more trips by bike, by foot, or on transit. This year things are a little different as the whole community, not just workplaces, is being invited to participate in the challenge. Make a habit of biking now and you will be pedaling all season! 

Let's Talk Bikes!

Are you between the ages of 10-19? Would you like to see Peterborough become a more bike-friendly community?

Youth are invited to join us for a pizza party and conversation about how to improve our community for people on bikes. Come by the shop at 3:00 PM on Friday May 8 for some free after-school pizza, and tell us your ideas about Peterborough could become more bike-friendly for youth.
