2022 Season Begins!
We’re happy to announce that our 2022 season will run from May 1 – October 30. Hours will be Sundays, 11-3.
News flash: open through October
We’ve been so gratified to see so many bikes get back on the road that we’ve decided to keep on with the open labs through October. See the museum’s announcement, and we hope to see you soon.
August 22 – closed due to weather
It probably comes as no surprise, but we will not be open on Sunday, August 22. Stay in, stay safe, and we hope to be able to see you next week!
July 25 afternoon update
Sunday afternoon update: we are open until 3!
July 25 morning update
Sunday morning update: we will not be opening at 11:00 today, July 25, due to on-and-off-again showers. IF we see that the weather will hold for a couple of hours, we will open for a couple of hours. This is unlikely before 1:00. Sorry for the inconvenience. Stay tuned.
Back in the saddle
Wow! It was great to be back doing open labs this month – our first time since October, 2019. We had 16 different parties stop by with well over two dozen different issues. Some people came by themselves, and some came in groups of varying size. People were of all ages and experience with their bikes, but everyone was excited to see what could be done to fix their bikes. Only one bike was really beyond help for our operation and might not even be worthwhile for further investment at…
Re-opening in July 2021!
The museum remains closed until next spring in order to perform some essential ventilation upgrades, but thanks to their generosity, we are back! Beginning July 11, we will be open, weather permitting, for outdoor bike labs. Our hours this year will be Sundays, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, July 11 – September 26.
