Mechanic

Bio coming soon!

Mechanic

The first time Byron was introduced to biking as recreation was by a friend in 2004. About 10 years ago, he picked up a bike again, this time for transportation. Learning to maintain his bike was a nessary skill to be a full time bicycle commuter. 

Byron likes going fast, exercising, knowing tha he can fix almost anything on any bike, pedaling up hills, eating cookies, and customizing his bike. Byron doesn't like flat tires, riding in the summer heat, finding safe places to lock his bike, people honking at, pant legs getting dirty from chain oil, and wearing helmets (we won't tell anyone).

Are you curious about bike touring but don't know how to get started? Or an experienced bike packer with many adventures and pro-tips to share?

 

Tuesday, May 22

7 PM - 9 PM 

St. George Bicycle Collective 

 

Join us for a fun evening of dreaming up new adventures!

Bike packers Chris Haag and Harrison Shotzbarger (and maybe a couple more) will share tales from their adventures around town, around the globe, and their prep work for a multi-year trip.

There will be lots of time for questions and exchange of ideas.

Everyone welcome! No one is too young or too old to explore the world by bicycle (tricycle, recumbent...)!

The event is FREE to the public

We believe that 30 minutes on the bike each day is enough to unwind, feel free, and is crucial to our happiness. So why not build a nice routine? 

EVERY WEDNESDAY 12 PM - 1 PM 


We will ride from the Collective to Sandtown Park - just down the street - for BYO lunch picnic. We hope to provide a space for folks to get outside and socialize for 45 mins during their workday. Everyone's gotta eat lunch, why not do it together under the red rock? It's our intention to keep this under an hour so commuters and 9-5ers can get away from the desk on their lunch break, stretch their legs, and chat with other Collective supporters. We will roll out from the Collective at 12:10p and leave the park to be back to our respective work places by 1p. 

This ride is family friendly. Pack your little ones in a trailer and enjoy lunch with us while they play in the park. If you bring young kids on their own bikes, you must be comfortable with them riding along Diagonal street and on a slight uphill grade. Everyone must wear helmets!

Please bring your own lunch, water, flat tire repair, etc. We hope to see you out there!
