As we emerge from a difficult year, we are feeling thankful for the little things—seeing friends, dinner parties, even in-person meetings. At Community Cycles, we are thankful to have weathered this storm and emerged on the other side mostly intact.
As we re-open, we’d like share with our members, volunteers and customers where we are at.
Masks. Unvaccinated staff and customers must wear masks. Masks are strongly encouraged for others.
Workshops. We are working to re-open more classes and workshops, but it will likely take a few months to get all classes back in session. Many classes are taught by volunteers (assisted by CC staff), and getting all the volunteers back and caught up will take some time.
DIY. We are open Sunday and Thursday for DIY where you can work on your own bike with our tools. You must be a member and reserve a stand. We will keep opening days as we are able to staff them.
Parts and Supplies. New parts and supplies are extremely difficult to get right now, but thanks to some earlier bulk orders, we do have a number of common items in stock. Stop by the shop to see if we have what you need.
Bikes. New bikes are hard to get, but we have been rebuilding pre-owned bikes all winter and have a pretty good supply—especially bikes that are great for commuting around town. Check online or stop by our shop and see if we have the right bike for you.
Thank you for supporting us during this difficult year. Thanks to your support we are able to pay our wonderful staff, even during the two months we shut down in 2020. Your continued support will allow us to get back to full operations faster and provide services to our community. If your membership has lapsed over this past year, please consider renewing. It is the support of our members that keeps Community Cycles strong.
