Winter Closure

December 24th through January 3rd

The shop will be closed December 24, 2021 through January 3, 2022. We will be open to all January 4th. Bring your bicycle in for full service by December 14th to guarantee turnover by December 23rd so you can keep riding through the holidays. 

BIPOC Open Shop Night

Thursday December 9, 2021

6 PM PDT – 8 PM PDT

 

2nd Cycle is a safe space for BIPOC folx to learn bike maintenance and safety. While other bike maintenance classes (and cycling in general) are usually white-dominated and have enrollment fees, this gathering will be free to folks that are melanated.


Pull up to our shop to fix and tune up your pedaling machine! These are free events with the exception of new or used parts required to get your bicycle fixed or tuned up. This reoccurring event will be facilitated by POC 2nd Cycle mechanics that will assist you with any bike-related needs! If no assistance is needed, then wrench on!
Our goal for this event is to build community and relationships with BIPOC bike riders to make them feel confident to ride and fix their bikes more often.

 

We hope to learn that providing safe space for those directly marginalized through indirect means, such as gentrification & racial wealth gap, fosters inclusive community and a voice to those usually not given a voice in this industry or sport.

BIPOC Community Shred (a group mountain bike ride!)

Saturday December 18, 2021 10AM 

Meet at the Eastside Community Center Parking Lot (56th and Portland Ave) for a mellow ride through the beginner and intermediate trails of Swan Creek Park. Loaner mountain bikes are available to those in need. Email, call, or DM us on social media to secure a bike, first come first serve. This event is for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color identifying folx only. Thanks! 

Dead End December Cycling Challenge

December 1, 2021 - January 8, 2022

We found some great dead-ends on our last Slow+Social Ride this summer. This winter we want to encourage you to get out there on bikes and make your own Dead End discoveries. 

 

Participating is simple and free:

-Pickup a Dead End December log book zine at the shop.

-Explore three Dead End roads by bike that you have never explored before.

-Complete the log book and return it to the shop for a fun prize.

 

A few friends have even offered to make a monetary donation to the shop for each log book that gets completed and returned, so you're supporting our programs just by participating. Stay safe, have fun and keep pedaling this winter!
