Instagram post 2131441168054464795_1723768816 Fix Your Own Bike is tonight from 6PM-8:30PM. $10/hr suggested donation. Link in bio.

Every week people come to our shop on Thursday nights to get help with their bikes. Sometimes they just need a cable adjustment, and some tightening here and there. Sometimes we have to get out the power tools and make some sparks fly, in order to replace something major. We offer help with that and everything in between.

Programming Note: Tonight's soundtrack will be all on the turntable. We're having a record party! Bring one of your favorite albums!

All bikes welcome.

Instagram post 2125769763849688007_1723768816 Very sad news today. Earlier this afternoon, we found out that longtime BikeAthens supporter and ride leader, Joe Kmeic, passed away in his home last week. Joe led our group rides for over ten years and will be greatly missed. There will be a full memorial tribute in this month's newsletter. Ride on Joe.

You may know how to ride a bike, but you might also feel like you don't really "know" about bikes. That can make it hard to ask for help with your bike. Every Thursday night, we open our shop to everyone. Whether you know very little about bikes, or everything about bikes. We are here to help.

Programming Note: Tonight's musical selections will feature full plays of The Avalanches - Since I Left You (2001), Lizzo - Cuz I Love You (2019), and we will spin vinyl for the final hour or so. Bring one of your favorite albums!

All bikes welcome.

If you have ever tried to work on your bike without the right tools, or space, it can lead to frustration. You might think, "If only I had access to a friendly bike shop with all the tools and advice I needed, this would be no big deal." Fortunately, BikeAthens is a special place where every Thursday night we open our shop so you can FYOB.

Programming Note: Tonight's musical selections will feature full plays of Titus Andronicus - An Obelisk (2019), Goodie Mob - Soul Food (1995), and we will spin vinyl for the final hour or so. Bring one of your favorite albums!
