Fix Your Own Bike is tonight from 6PM-8:30PM. $10/hr suggested donation. Link in bio.

If you just need the tools and space to work, you got it. If you need help figuring out what to do, we are always here with the tools and solid advice to help you get the job done. It's been 60 weeks since we did this, so come out and say hello.

We are fully vaxxed and we hope you are too. If you haven't had your vaccine(s), this is the perfect excuse to get it now. We'll have the doors open for air circulation and try to keep everyone spaced apart so we can work safely. If it gets too crowded we may have to have you schedule an appointment for later.

Programming Note: Tonight's soundtrack will feature full plays of Valerie June - The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers (2021), The Pink Stones - Introducing The Pink Stones (2021), New York Dolls - New York Dolls (1973), and we will spin the record machine to close the night. Bring your favorite record!

All bikes are welcome.

Full details will be posted tomorrow.
We'll be here all morning giving out free helmets and safe biking swag!  #bikeweek2021 #capitaltocoast
We'll be watching the weather for our helmet giveaway tomorrow morning. If you would like a free bike helmet, stop by the shop 10:30am-12:30pm. If it looks like clear skies, we will head out on a short group ride at 1:00pm!

The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) and Georgia Bike Safety groups are extremely excited to invite you to a brand new public awareness campaign for National Bike Month 2021. As you may or may not know, May is National Bike Month. To kick off this effort at home here in Georgia, GOHS will be debuting “Capital to Coast 2021” May 3-7, 2021. The inaugural launch of this campaign will include a 5-city educational tour, with stops in Atlanta, Athens, Macon, Savannah, and Brunswick.

Since the tour is stopping in areas around Georgia, we would love to invite you to attend the Bike Week event in your city! Local media will be invited to the event, which will include a welcome by GOHS, bike safety education, helmet fitting events and short bicycle rides.
Joy Ride is rolling out at six pm.

Tonight is the next installment of our virtual Fix Your Own Bike session! This is our weekly Zoom call where we chat about all kinds of topics related to bikes. This is the last chance to get help with your bike before the return of the monthly Joy Ride tomorrow evening. You heard right, we are going on a bike ride tomorrow and it would be lovely to see you all there. 

You can't use our tools, you can't come into the shop, but you can get as much of our solid advice as you need so you can take the next steps toward getting your bike riding right again.

Some of our top mechanics will be on the call so it's going to be a lot like NPR's Car Talk, but for bikes. Plus, if you have a smartphone or webcam, we can help you diagnose what is happening in real time.

If you just want to hang out and listen to bike nerds, that's cool too.

THIS IS 100% FREE.
