PLEASE NOTE! Due to the final stages of the work on the parking lot, we will be CLOSED on Tuesday, July 12th. That means we will be closed both Monday and Tuesday of next week. We will re-open for our regular hours on Wednesday. The good news is that the project is nearing completion!

Do you know a vet with a trike? Ask him or her to join us!
Do you know a vet without a trike who would like to join us? Let us know - we might be able to find a loaner for them.
Costumes are not necessary but welcomed; 4th-of-July-themed bike decorations are expected. We usually have extra flags and red-white-blue crepe paper to share.
We are in Division 6, Position 606. Hopefully we are ahead of the elephants (if you've ridden with us in the past, you'll know why this is a good thing; otherwise, use your imagination). The links below the parade information and where the Division 6 Position 6 meeting place is.
Learn the basics of keeping your bike running smoothly and safely. Topics covered in this basic maintenance class include pre-ride safety check, flat repair and avoidance, cleaning and lubing, and minor gear and brake adjustments. No need to bring your bike; we demonstrate on one of ours. The class costs $45, which includes a $25 tool kit. RSVP on our Meetups page, call us at 703-938-8900, or visit our shop to sign up.
In an unprecedented move, the Metrorail system is going to be completely shut down, from midnight on March 15th until the morning of Thursday the 17th! Apparently this is due to an urgent need for safety inspections of parts of the electrical system.
A good day to ride your bike to work... the weather forecast looks good, although there is a chance of rain. If your own bike isn't an option, Capital Bikeshare is offering FREE 24 hour memberships tomorrow:
Word didn't go out until 4:35pm on Tuesday, which doesn't give a lot of warning for folks. If there's anything we can do to help you with your commute, let us know. We'll be open from 10am until 7pm, ready to fix your bike, and we'll have hot coffee for you too!
Have you ever thought about trying bicycle touring? Packing up your bike and heading out on the open road or the trail for a couple of days, a week, or a whole summer? Why not come and listen to folks who have done it? That's our next Chocolate Chat, on Sunday, March 13th at 10:00am. We'll cover supported and independent touring, and discuss how to prepare, pack, and enjoy your bicycle adventure, from an overnight trip on the C&O to a coast-to-coast epic! You'll get to hear from four or more people with many years and miles of touring experience between them. We'll provide coffee, hot tea, and cocoa for a cold day. Come and learn and share your own experiences too!
We all know Spring is coming... sooner or later. Why not take advantage of these special offers on service packages and avoid the inevitable Spring rush? As an added bonus, we can offer faster turnaround time at this point, due to the fact we just have fewer bikes coming in!
These specials only apply when you bring your bike in before March 15th... after March 15th we move to our regular 2016 service prices.
