Pedal Depot closing + OCB Holiday closure dates

December 15, 2014

As many of you know, we are re-structuring our operations to better serve our diverse communities. This process includes more streamlined programming, specifically our Pedals For the People program. As part of this re-structuring, we will be vacating our current location at 1830 Ontario Street, lovingly known by many as the PEDAL Depot. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your years of commitment to using our services in this space and contributing to the close knit atmosphere you have helped to foster in this space. We hope to see you up the hill at OCB real soon! Stay tuned for upcoming changes by following our website or our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Our-Community-Bikes/166259726737486)

We are also having a big sale at the Pedal Depot on Saturday December 20th and Sunday the 21st: https://www.facebook.com/events/803202176426339/

Also, Our Community Bikes will be closed for a 2 week holiday: the last day open will be Sunday the 21st of December and our first day back open will Saturday the 3rd of January. Come in this week for any last minute repairs, as our friends at the UBC Bike Kitchen are closed for the holidays as well.
