You’re Invited to our HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE!!
Saturday, December 28, 2013 from 10 am to 4 pm.
This is your opportunity to check out our operation. You can see our bike library; meet our bike mechanics, Frank Pavlick (Advanced Bike Mechanics) and Scott Slingerland (Basic Bike Mechanics); donate old or unused bikes and/or bike parts, and check our our inventory of bikes available for rehab.
It’s a POT LUCK, so feel free to bring bakery, snacks, or any type of food you’d like to share. If you have any questions about what you can bring, or loan us for the party (we could use a small fridge, and a coffee maker)
We hope to see you!!
