About the Event
Announcing April’s LIVE TALK - Being in a Bike Shop. Demystifying the Bike Shop Experience with @sidesaddlebikes
I’m so excited about this talk and Spring is the perfect time to get to know your bike shop ‘cause as a bike owner or potential bike owner you’ll likely be visiting one in the near future.
But bike shops can be scary places, right? Honestly, I used to feel super intimated in bike shops. I would basically run in, try to articulate what I needed, feel disheartened cause I’d have no idea what the mechanic was saying to me and then run out as fast as I could. And, as a self identifying woman I did not feel represented in these spaces.
All that has changed for me, of course learning about bike maintenance and repair has played a big part, but also more and more friendly and welcoming bike shops, like SideSaddle Bikes are opening, and creating a space where all people who have bicycles can feel seen and heard.
So whether you’ve never stepped into a bike shop, or you’ve visited one many times this talk is about getting to know your bike shop better. Join us Wednesday April 29th at 7pm PST as we hear directly from the SideSaddle Bikes team about their roles and their tips and tricks on how to navigate a bike shop, and we unpack some of that bike shop jargon.
