Instagram post 17920738126383949 Quick rule of thumb for everyone. If you must be out in public or at work, the CDC recommends everyone practice social distancing. That means "remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible." If you can't put your bike between you and the next person, you are too close.
Instagram post 17865521035681447 Fix Your Own Bike is tonight from 6PM-8:30PM. $10/hr suggested donation. Link in bio.

Tonight is our Spring Break session of FYOB. We will be here to help you get your chain back on, fix a flat, or whatever else your bike needs. We are here every Thursday to let you use the tools, spare parts, and solid advice.

Programming Note: Tonight we will let Social Distortion teach us about social distancing with their self titled album, consider our situation with Bad Religion's Stranger than Fiction (featuring "The Handshake" and "Infected"), and imagine an escape to outer space with Dozer's In the Tail of a Comet. Snacks will be individually packaged. 
All bikes welcome.

Even if you keep up with the basics like putting air in your tires and keeping the chain lubed, your bike will eventually need more work and maintenance. Whether you are up to the task or not, FYOB night is a great place to take care of your bike. 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.

Programming Note: Tonight's soundtrack will feature full plays of Savages - Silence Yourself (2013), Bully - Losing (2017), Brittany Howard - Jaime (2019), and we will spin the record machine to close the night. Bring your favorite record!
