Free Basic Bike Repair with Repair Cafe

Get your bike ready for spring with a free basic tune up/repair for first come, first served. We are not able to do major repairs but our mechanics may be able to tell you what needs to be done and how to go about it. Donations and volunteers are always welcomed. WD-40, shop rags, and bike cables are the most needed donations. Volunteers do not need to have any bike skills for help with signing people in. Safety materials will be available. Let us know any questions: info@bikefriendlykingston.org
