Time’s Up events June 1st-June 20th

Here is the latest from Time’s Up, your local community Bicycle activist group and Co-op.

The Time’s Up! Bicycle Co-Op is now offering inexpensive bicycles from it’s recycle a bike program. While the recycle a bike program offers all different styles of bikes, we are currently focusing on providing a very practical Dutch style gender non-specific recycled bicycle. These bikes are single speed and includes full fenders, chain guard, and in most cases a rear rack and front basket.
The recycle a bike program’s hours are Wednesday’s from 4-6 p.m. and Saturday’s and Sunday’s from 2-6 p.m.
All donations raised will go towards the Time’s Up Bicycle Co-Op and to keep our Bike Repair Workshops running!
