Bikerowave Class: Turn Your Old Bike to New Utility Bike

Peter will be back this month with a cool class.  Ever glanced disgustedly at that beat and rusty mountain bike sitting in your side yard?  It seemed like such a great idea in the 90’s, an all terrain bike that gave you the freedom to be unrestrained by roads, man.  Well put that neon colored contraption to work for you in the 21st century.  Peter will teach you the in’s and outs of converting it in to a really boss utility bike.  Come listen to him discuss all things useless-to-useful and learn about smooth tires, extracycles, mirrors, and why every bike needs a water bottle cage.

All classes are on Sunday and start at 4pm. RSVP at with the date of the class in the subject line to make things easy for us.  You can also email that address if you want to be notified about future classes.
