CT hours are changing

With the changing season, also comes a change in Cycle Transitions hours. As of this week, we’re switching to “off-season” hours at CT. We’ll be open to the public and members on Tuesday evening and Saturday mornings only. Thursday evenings are reserved for mechanics to start working on our stockpile of bicycles.

Anniversary BBQ: Sat. Oct. 5 from 12-2pm

Yummy Yummy! It’s a great opportunity to take a look in the shop, see what’s happening, renew your membership, or just socialize with other cyclists.

Location: Cycle Transitions
Time: 12:00-2:00pm

Hope you can make it!

Need help to collect donated bicycles from Cobourg Police Service

The Cobourg Police Service has generously agreed to donate unclaimed bicycles from their storage to Cycle Transitions provided we make as many of them as possible to folks-in-need. We are looking for volunteers to help with the collection and transportation of these bicycles. Those with a truck, a van, or trailer are especially encouraged to lend a hand.

Date: Tuesday September 24th
Time:  3:30 p.m.
Meeting Place: Cobourg Police Station

Please let us know if you can help out. Either email at info@cycletransitions.org or use the commenting feature to let us know you are in!

Women only, Basic Bicycle Maintenance Workshop: Sept. 17th, 6:30-9:00

gears-pinkThere is no formal presentation but Tuesday evening has been set aside for women only. You can drop by, work on your bike, practice some skills either on your own bike or a Cycle Transitions bike, and talk shop with the other women there. Basic maintenance will go a long way toward protecting the investment you’ve made in your bicycle. Learn how to clean your bike, clean and lubricate your chain, or change a tire. You never know when it will come in handy.
