Pedal Depot closure + July hot dates

July 8, 2014

It saddens us that our project space and favorite place to be, the Pedal Depot, will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC until further notice. As of June 1st, the Pedal Depot is staff only. We hope to have our doors open to you as soon as possible. This also means that the PEDALs For The People program is on hold for the time being.
We will update when we have more solid news, but for now, we regret to say that the day to day interactive public services aren’t available for a period of time.

In the meantime, our friends and peers in the community bike shop world can fill those gaps for you.
