Spaces Places Faces

if you have heard a rumor that we are moving, your ears have not deceived you.  Indeed, we will be relocating our community bike space to a new facility in North Troy - 3280 6th ave. to be specific - sometime later this spring.  The place has been dubbed the Wheelhouse and will be a bigger and better home for all (y)our TBR needs.  We are really looking forward to it, but also are not ready to give an exact date (or even a ballpark) for the big move.  so just stay tuned, but jumping on our email list (link in the left sidebar), or following us on Facebook.  Twitter?  What the hell is that? 

ALSO -- Learn & Earn Wednesdays are officially back up and running after a winter hiatus, so stop by on Mondays for Open Shop or Wednesdays for informal workshops and volunteering hours.  Spring is on the way... wait it'ts here... wait... is it?

this friday! Feb.25th 7pm!
