Bikes and Bike Geeks Needed

Bike Newport’s Open Garage is all about DIY, but folks are still needed to guide and assist. If you dig getting greasy and know the difference between index and friction shifters, your help would be much appreciated. The garage is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4:30 to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Bike Newport offices, 62 Broadway.

The Community Bike Project is in full spring swing, restoring and redistributing bikes. Over the past month, 88 bikes were matched with people who needed them. Nearly 60 of those went out to Newport’s international summer workforce. If you have extra bikes in road-ready or reparable condition, bring them to Bike Newport.
