You know if must really be spring when Open Shop finally makes its triumphant return! Free, DIY, guerilla-style bike maintenance is coming back to the streets of Allston this week. For those of you who don't know what the deal, Open Shop is our flagship program. We set up shop on the side of the road with our repair stands and tools, and then help you fix whatever might be ailing your bike, all for free. We aim to demystify the bike so that you can maintain your ride yourself.
We're expanding our reach into North Allston this year, so Open Shop will alternate between Union Square (same location as last year), and Barry's Corner (corner of N. Harvard and Western Ave). Here's a map with our two spots for the season.
What: Free, DIY, guerilla bike maintenance, and a great cycling community.
When: Every Wednesday afternoon, from about 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm, weather permitting.
Where: Union Square Allston, or Barry's Corner Allston on alternating weeks.
