Stay connected to the Shop...

During Spring and Summer, we offer free clinics every month on various topics. No registration is required to take the classes. All workshops are hands-on, and participants don't learn on their own bikes, so it is perfectly fine to come without one.  Please come dressed in clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.  We also offer a BNB members-only open shop called Tool Time which does require sign up ahead of time.
