You know it’s spring when the Spokane Bike Club’s bikes get tuned up. They’re ready for use in District 81′s bike safety skills class. Michael Conelly of North Division Bikes, Liza Mattana of P2P and Charlie Greenwood were on hand to help! 30 bikes ready for 30 eager kids, nice.

Many thanks to Sun People Dry Goods for putting together a great class benefiting P2P! Paul Turner, John Speare, Eileen Hyatt, and Barb Chamberlain were in the house talking about everything a Spokane bike commuter could want to know about commuting in the city.
What a unique class, thanks to all who attended and made this event possible!
That ‘s right Spokane, Pedals 2 People is opening our doors to the whole community this April with our first in-shop-free-tune-up-day. Wow, I’m excited already! All those kids getting their brakes fixed! Commuters having their shifting dialed to perfection! Free food!
This might get crazy, and I hope it does. Tell your friends, tell those in need.
Seriously though, this is an opportunity for pedals to be there for you. Through education and outreach we hope to make it easier for everyone to get out there and ride. The community of cyclists and the infrastructure for sustainable transportation is growing, and will not go away, as long as we support each other. After a rad year serving the community here at 1802 we want to get to the root of things. people to people. life to living.
Here are the details, we’d really love to see you there.
Sunday, April 3rd, Noon – 4pm.
Free Community Tune-Up @ the P2P DIY Bicycle Shop.
1802 e Sprague, at the corner of Pittsburg St.
Bring your bike! Free food!
Kids first, all are welcome.
Workshop topics will cover traffic laws, riding on the road, finding your route, gear selection, and a discussion on just getting started. Speakers include Eileen Hyatt, Paul Turner, Barb Chamberlain, & John Speare. In addition, P2P will be on hand at the end of the workshop to go over flat repair and basic bike maintenance – so bring your bicycle!
All proceeds from this workshop will go to support P2P (the cost is $15), and you can register online through Brown Paper Tickets, or, come to the store (32 W 2nd Ave., on the NE corner of 2nd and Browne) and register today!
