We have been having some good turn outs. People have been coming out pretty regularly, and their bike are almost complete! We are glad to have some more participation. Art Basel was pretty awesome around the neighborhood. We lent out a small troupe of community bikes for those who came from out of town. The community bike project went well for it's first run and is now continuous. Those interested in borrowing out a bike can contact us on the firefly website or can try us at the house phone. We have been having tall bike workshops with the help of our new friend Chris. Four community tall bikes are in the works. We still need more people who are interested in being apart of the collective. We are also looking for different projects to work on or for people who want to put together workshops. We always welcome donations and want to meet other people who know how to write for grants that might want to lend us a hand. All and all
the bike collectives wallet is getting pretty thin. we are thinking about throwing another fundraiser? ...Any ideas? Let us know!

Hello ya'll!

The bike collective needs you're help! We want your suggestions on tools we should buy, skills you want to learn, and things you think we should be providing for the community etc. So far we only have about 3 dedicated volunteers, but that is very limiting. We have created this space in order for cyclists of all types to come learn, teach and hopefully walk away with some golden treasures hidden in our damp little cave of donated bikes and parts. If you have an idea for an event we should put on, that you would like to put on, or ways for you to volunteer and help that aren't on our traditional 2-6pm Saturday schedule just e-mail us back!

** As an update were very happy to announce our community bike project!!

In town? No bike? We have a small fleet of community bikes ready to be ridden and enjoyed by all! From road bikes, to hybrids, single/fixed road conversions…contact us for more details.
