Grand Re-opening in a NEW shop!!

Posted: January 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

The New Shop is finally complete! Come down to Nasson and check out the new space! It’s brighter, warmer and as always full of bikes!  We are still open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for “drop-in” from 2-5pm with our spectacular adult open shop on Tuesdays from 5-7pm.  Walk down the steps right inside Nasson and you will see a brand new wall…behind the door…our new space! We are also excited about several new volunteers at the Nasson Community Bicycle Center!  Boy does it feel like we are growing and will have the opportunity to teach more kids all about bicycle repair while putting more bikes in the Sanford Community. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Bike Shop is Building!

Posted: January 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

That’s right we are moving the shop!  We started building the wall yesterday in the multi-purpose room that you step into as you come down the stairs.  The wall is up, sheet rock is close to complete…next steps will be to mud and tape, paint and voila a bigger shop! We are very excited as we grow and expand. We will be able to have nine stands in the new shop and more space to focus on building more bikes. We plan to start using the shop as soon as Tuesday and hope that over the next couple of weeks everything will come together nicely. All the supplies and tools in one room, with a steady flow of Heat! We are currently looking for someone with graffiti experience or the ability to paint a mural outside the wall of the new shop. The changes are very exciting as we move into the new year. Looking forward to enrolling new bike shop members and continuing to grow all the while putting more bikes into Sanford for those folks that need them.

Open shop is still running Tues, Wed and Thursday from 2p-5pm…with an extended open family shop on Tuesday nights from 5pm-7pm. We are excited to welcome any students, volunteers or guests interested in checking out the new shop, stop by during our shop hours.
