Some changes are afoot at the garage.

Our regular hours will be changing for the Fall/Winter. Instead of regular Monday/Weds nights, we’ll be doing sort of ad hoc garage hours based on volunteer availability.

To find out when we’re open, consult our event calendar. Our goal is to update the calendar a couple weeks out. We’re just getting October figured out now, so there’s nothing there. But keep an eye on it; we’ll be adding some slots over the next week or so.

Come next spring, hopefully we’ll be able to do our Monday/Weds again and maybe a weekend day. And with some luck we’ll have another space closer to the flat part of town.

This is a community bike resource, so it relies 100% on community volunteers to run. We need trustworthy, smart, happy volunteers to help run this thing. If you’re interested, email Liza at pedals2people at gmail.com

On a related note: if you go to the garage to work on a bike, you should expect to learn. None of the volunteers that staff our garage are experts. We’re all hacks — well, except for Liza — , but we’re all passionate about bikes,community,and working together. If you want expertise: go to a bike shop. If you want to learn and teach: come to our community shop.
