Bicycle Repair Workshop Set for November 2nd, 2013

el-fenix_IMG_5726

Our next bicycle repair workshop is set for November 2nd, 2013 from noon to 3pm. Bring your bikes and skateboards and we will help you do some basic repairs. Flat tires, loose handlebars, we will tackle anything. All workshops are free and open to all.

About the Bicycle Repair Workshop

We are not mechanics or professional technicians, just regular folks that like to work on bikes. We have some bicycle specific tools that makes some of the more routine maintenance so much easier. Repairs are done on a first come, first served basis, however, we try to spend some time working on all the bikes that come through. Tools are also available for check out.

Getting to the Workshop

If the location or time do not fit into your schedule please send us a shout, we will do everything we can to make alternative arrangements. The most important thing is that your bike gets the attention it needs. If a different date, time or location work better for you, please contact us and let us know how we can help you out.

Replacement Parts and Supplies

We have very limited supplies and replacement parts, for instance, inner tubes. If specific parts are needed to complete the repair we can help you identify the parts needs and where you can purchase them.

Bicycle Donation

We are accepting bicycles in any condition for use in our upcoming Bike Share program. Bicycles donated to the Bike Share programs will be refurbished and made available for use at little or no cost to a eager rider. If you would like to drop off a bike at the bicycle repair workshop or have additional questions, please contact us.

Location

Workshops are hosted by Latino Health Access at Familias Corazones Verdes Park.

Sweet Ride USA – Desserts and Bicycling

Sweet Ride USA

Tell me this doesn’t look like fun? I’m sure we could convince Sweet Ride USA to venture down behind the orange curtain and pay us a visit. Leave us a comment if you would be interested in participating in a very sweet ride.

Of all the things that are good and great about riding bikes, the satisfaction of being able to pig out and pedal it all off cannot be overlooked. For all of you indulgent cyclists out there, Sweet Ride USA is celebrating the balance between cycling and sugar with a brand new web series.

Based in LA, the Sweet Ride crew is eager to indulge in more streets and sweets in other cities, so hit ‘em up and let them know where to find the good stuff in your neck of the woods. (And check out their decadent Instagram feed!)

If you haven’t already, please check out UrbanVelo. They produce an incredible bicycle ‘zine for free, although it is well worth sending them a few bucks for their hard work.

After seven successful years, it appears The North American Handmade Bicycle Show has become established as the world’s number one handmade bicycles show. In addition to many US frame builders, exhibitors from countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, and The Netherlands have helped the show become what it is.

Since 2005, NAHBS has been consistently dedicated to showcasing the talents of individuals around the world whose art form is the bicycle. It continues to aim to be a meeting point-online and in person-for frame builders and cycling enthusiasts, for the sharing of ideas, and the promotion of a special industry with a rich history dating back to 1819.

Since its first year in 2005, NAHBS has grown from a show with 23 exhibitors and 700 attendees, to a high water mark of 172 exhibitors and 7,300 attendees in 2011. The overall trend from 2005-11 is one of steady growth at a rate of 8-10% a year.
