Winter Bike Storage

My bike’s name is Penelope, and one of her greatest fears is snow. She trembles at the thought of her frame corroding from the street salt, her chain seizing up due to rust, and her brake and derailleur cables freezing.

Weekend Activities

This weekend was especially exciting for cyclists and bike enthusiasts. Friday was Campus Sustainability Day on Britton Plaza.

The Handlebar fixed a couple bikes and spread the word about what we do and what our hours are in the shop. Four of our volunteers showed up Continue reading →
