  • Open Shop – Scott K

    Open Shop is the time when anyone can come in to work on their own projects*, volunteer, or purchase things.

    Usually there will be a mix of people with different skill levels; we encourage a collaborative atmosphere so people can advance their projects.

    People may volunteer during this time, either by assisting others, or by working on other self-directed tasks. Volunteer hours can be applied towards membership, classes, unrefurbished bikes, and used parts.

    At Free Ride you will find tools, repair manuals, bicycle parts, and volunteer mechanics to help you repair and learn about the bicycle. It is helpful to be familiar with tools and how they work, but not necessary. During our open shop hours, you can bring in your bike, and  volunteers can help you diagnose any problems that you may be experiencing.

    Children are welcome, but all minors must be supervised by an adult.

    Please note that during our busy season, there may be a wait for access to tools and workspace. Just be patient, and maybe lend a hand!

    *We ask that those who benefit from Free Ride also give back to the project. To use the shop and tools for personal repairs we ask non-members for a shop fee-either $4, some volunteering, or showing an ACCESS card.

    Our regular monthly ride meets at Dippy at 6pm on the Third Friday, departing at 6:30!

    PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

    412 Flock! is a welcoming, family-friendly, all-inclusive, FREE event consisting of a leisurely-paced bicycle ride (complete [usually] with music and mechanical support) and a post-ride party.

    The group pedals through the city at a slow, welcoming pace appropriate for riders of all ages and capabilities. You get a chance to make new friends, learn new routes, and have fun on your bike!

    –Where?–

    We’ll meet at Dippy the Dinosaur (Forbes Ave at Schenley Drive in Oakland, in front of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, across from the Cathedral of Learning).

    My my, so many questions.

    –What should I bring?–

    Helmets. Lights. A bike to put those lights on. (Uni and tricycles welcome, too!)
    Don’t have a bike? Check out the HealthyRide BikeShare stations all over the city–including a block from our start!
    Be sure to bring all your friends!

    –What happens in the case of rain/snow/zombie apocalypse?–

    On the afternoon of the ride, we’ll decide whether conditions are safe enough to ride. Look for updates here, on Twitter, and on our website a couple of hours before the start of the ride if things are looking sketchy.
