Spring Bicycle Wheel Wreath Workshop

Our favorite night of Upcycled crafting is back for a springtime theme!  Plus, it is on Earth Day (April 22), so it’s the perfect way to celebrate and reduce our carbon footprint.

Join Laura for a night of spring wreath making by ‘upcycling’ old bicycle wheels. The cost for this event is $45 which covers materials, light refreshments and wine. Space is limited so reserve your spot today.

We will have varying sizes and colors of old wheels to use. Crafting materials such as ribbon, glue, wire, greenery, etc. will be provided.

Follow this event on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/1616371381815410/) for some inspirational photos, and come prepared for an evening of fun!

If you are interested in spray painting a wheel a specific color before the night of the event, please email Laura at laura@tricycleandrun.com to work out the details.

To reserve your spot, please send your payment of $45 through the PayPal link provided, or you can stop by the shop during regular business hours to pay.

2018 Park Tool Workshops

We are happy to announce that our Park Tool School Workshops will continue in 2018!

The Park Tool School is a hands-on maintenance and repair clinic written by Park Tool and taught by the experts here at TriCycle and Run. Learn how your bike works, how to change a flat or overhaul your bike completely. Clinic curriculum and materials originate from the BBB-3 Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair, which acts as the outline for each clinic.  Our clinic will review the basics of home bicycle maintenance, plus give you the skills to perform basic bicycle tune-ups and diagnose and repair mechanical issues as they arise.

Registration fee:  $150 (includes a Park Tool Mechanics Apron & a copy of the Park Tool Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair – a $50 Value)

2018 DATES:

January Park Tool School:  January 14 &  28  REGISTRATION HERE

UPDATED!!  February Park Tool School:  February 4 & 18  REGISTRATION HERE

March Park Tool School:  March  4 & 18  REGISTER HERE

Each workshop is a 2-day classroom style setting.  Class hours are 9:00am-1:00pm.  Lunch will be provided each day.  The registration fee of $150 is due on the first day of class.  Day one of each workshop will be an overview of basic bicycle information and maintenance knowledge.  Day 2 will be an intense hands-on classroom, so you are encouraged to bring your bicycle with you to class.  If you do not have a bicycle, but still want to learn, we can provide you with a bike to work on.  You should prepare to get your hands dirty on day 2!  It is truly a FUN experience, and a great workshop for every bike enthusiast!

REGISTRATION is required for these workshops as space is limited.  Please use the links posted above to register for either January, February or March.

HOLIDAY SHOPPERS, we think it is a great idea to purchase a GIFT CERTIFICATE to cover the cost of the clinic for the bike enthusiast in your life.  If you are interested, please call Laura today (410)745-2836.
