Back from Bike Bike!

Hi everyone,

We got back from bike bike late Monday and weren't able to open the shop. Sorry to anyone who may have come Monday night and not heard the word.

Bike Bike 2009 was great. The Grease Pitt put on a great event and we had a lot of fun. We were very envious of the Minneapolis's dedication to usable bike paths, community gardens, free organic food, cooperative businesses, light rail system and a lot of really friendly people.

There were a lot of great workshops on a lot of different shop related topics, and we have some great ideas from the different workshops.

Shop will be closed on August 31st

Hi Everybody

We are still at bike bike and will not have the Troy Workshop open on Monday, August 31st.

We will be open next week during our regular hours.

Albany workshop is still open! Go see them if you need something!

Wish you were here!

It is ride your bike to work day!

Well, for some of us this is every day, or every other day.

In honor of the holiday here is the slacker’s guide to bike commuting.

Whose streets? Our Streets!

One German suburb has banned cars from its streets, reserving them to garages on the edge of town. Instead, people walk, bike and use public transportation to get around.

How revolutionary.
