Busy Bike Shop

Over the past couple of weeks, spring in Olympia has felt like, well, spring anywhere else. We’ve been treated to cherry blossoms, blue skies and warm temperatures–and when it’s this nice, there’s just one thing to do: get outside!

The volunteers at the Evergreen Bike Shop have been doing their part by helping visitors get their bicycles (literally) in gear. They are well-stocked with tools and bike stands, and have a number of miscellaneous parts free for those in need. In true Greener fashion, they don’t do repairs on order; but are on-site to help riders figure out how to do their own repairs, and to lend a helping hand.

If you need some help getting your bicycle back on its wheels, stop by and see them. Hours are posted on the door, or you can check in with their blog at: http://evergreenbikeshop.blogspot.com/
