Wednesday, May 1st from 6pm – 9pm is Women and Queer Night at the Bike Kitchen!

Exciting news! We are proud to announce that WQ Night is now free!  That’s right – free shop time for anyone who self-identifies as female and/or LGBTQ!

Light snacks will also be provided, courtesy of the AMS Bike Co-op.

The Details:

When?: Wednesday, May 1st. Drop in anytime between 6:00 and 9:00. (Fun fact: we run WQ Night on the first Wednesday of every month, so if you can’t make it this time around, come by for the next one in June!)

What?: Open shop time, with a demo at 7:00 pm.

Where?: The Bike Kitchen. We’re located in the basement of the Student Union Building (6138 Student Union Boulevard). To get to the shop, go to the North side of the building and go down the stairs to the left of the lower entrance (look for the bike on a pole).

Bring: Your bicycle! We will have knowledgeable volunteers available to help you learn how to get your ride in tip-top shape! If you do not have a bike, no worries – we can still teach you some neat skills and answer any bike related questions you may have.

Hope to see you there!
