Hey Everyone,

We had a few technical difficulties, but our figurative neon “LIVE” sign is about light back up! 

 Streaming Tuesday July 7 at 11:00 a.m.

 

Youth Open Shop: Live is a program where youth can ask their bike related questions and get answers live on air. Every week we will present a short lesson as a topic of discussion, but you can ask any question you have about bikes and we will do our best to explain the answer.

This will be held as a Zoom webinar that will be linked in the announcement posts here on our website and on our instagram pages. We are also working on posting the recorded videos so if you aren’t able to view them live you can still participate and ask your questions through the comments or our questions form.

Our goal is to answer as many bicycle related questions as possible, and we need yours! Future topics are also needed, so even if you might not know the name of the part, or even what part is broken, do your best to describe it and we’ll get right on it! 

Thank you all so much for your interest and support of the Bicycle Collective, we hope you can join us. Have a great day, ride safe, and we’ll see you soon!

Women’s Night

Bicycle maintenance has traditionally been a male-dominated environment. Let's change that!

Women’s Night offers a safe and supportive environment for females and those who identify to volunteer in the shop or fix their own bikes. Participants learn new skills, get practical help with their own bikes, and contribute to our bicycle giveaway programs. Join us whether you have experience with bicycles or not. 

For those working on their own bikes, there is a $10/hour suggested donation (more if you can, less if you can't).

OBC Women’s Night is on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month 5 - 8 pm, starting from March 2020.

Women’s Night - Community Rides 

Join us every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month to learn new trails and commuting routes, and make some new riding buddies along the way. Check our Facebook Events for ride details and RSVP, or contact . Rides will be cancelled if there are no confirmed participants 24 hrs priors to the ride start.
