Spring is here, and it’s time to dust off those bikes! TRIP’s 2011 Troy’s Treasure Awardee, Troy Bike Rescue, can help you get peddling again! In their own words, “TBR is a collective of bicycle enthusiasts committed to removing bikes from the waste stream, and putting them back into use. Join us as we build bicycle community through hands-on education.”
Their shop is located at 3280 6th Ave. in North Troy, and below is their new schedule and expanded hours:
The TBR Storefront is open Sunday through Thursday 12-5pm.
Workshop nights are as follows:
Open Shop: Monday & Wednesday 5-8pm
Youth Shop (ages 10-15): Tuesday 3-6pm
Fem Shop (women and trans folk only please): Thursday 5-8pm
Troy Bike Rescue’s annual fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, 5/19 at the Sanctuary for Independent Media. TBR is a volunteer organization that relies on community support; admission to the event is $20.
As the weather continues to warm up TBR will be even more active. Keep up-to-date on all their goings-on by visiting their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/troybikerescue.
