Block Party August 23 -- NO BIKE CAVE

Hey all,

Loaves and Fishes Community, of which the Bike Cave is part, is celebrating our 25th year and we invite you all to join us with a street party on August 23rd, 3-7pm on the 1600 block of Jeffersron Street. There will be potluck, live music, kids games, henna tattoos and face painting, and a slowest bicycle race!

Needless to say, there will be no open shop that day, but we will be giving tours!

Did you know that the Bike Cave does not have any payed staff? That's right, we are a donation and volunteer run bike shop. This Saturday we will begin our summer hours! The Bike Cave will now be open every Wednesday from 3-6 and every Saturday from 1-5. But, we need a little bit of help before we extend our shop hours. This Saturday we will be building a small storage shed for extra bikes in the back yard and we will be doing some cleaning and organizing in the Bike Cave. Leave your bikes at home and come on over to HELP US OUT THIS SATURDAY!!

The Bike Cave is NOT accepting bicycle donations until spring

The Bike Cave relies on the generosity and solidarity of many wonderful people. In fact, you all have been so generous that we are running out of space to house bikes! Please understand that we cannot accept more donations at this time. Thanks!

Winter and new Bike Cave hours are coming!

Good people of the Bike Cave,

Seasons are changing and we need to pare down and clean shop! If you have a tagged bicycle at the Bike Cave, please stop by BEFORE OCTOBER 15 to claim it or re-tag it so we know it is still a work in progress. Unclaimed bikes will be put back into circulation.

On October 31 we will be hosting our second annual BIKE GRAVE group ride through downtown. Meet at the Bike Cave at 5pm, wear a costume and bring candy to share with the masses! 

Bike Grave will mark the end of our summer hours and start of NEW WINTER HOURS. For the remainder of the cold months, Bike Cave will be open every Wednesday, with a few exciting twists:
  • 3-5pm: the usual open shop... wrench away!
  • 5pm: tutorial on bike maintenance and winter biking!
  • 6pm: everyone is welcome upstairs for a potluck dinner! 
  • 6:30-7:30pm: get your volunteer hours in! This will be a time for clean-up and shop improvement projects (like a new workbench!). NO personal projects at this time.
Happy pedaling!

Kelly, Chelsea, Allen, Billy and Joel
