Brompton Maintenance and Repair Class - March 26, 2019

That's right, the long-awaited, much-anticipated class focused on the care and maintenance of the Brompton returns to bikes@vienna! Learn how to fix a flat tire and perform basic adjustments on this terrific little bike. This will also be a great opportunity to meet other Brompton owners and share tips and information with each other.  Cost for the class is $45, and you will also have your choice of a Portland Design Works 3Wrencho combo tire lever/axle wrench or a coupon for $20 off the Brompton Toolkit, or a free copy of David Henshaw's The Brompton Bicycle.

We will start promptly at 7:00pm and should be finished around 9:00pm on Monday, March 26th.

Make Black Friday a Green Friday!

Once again, we're going to be CLOSED on Black Friday (11/24/16).  Since none of us here are really fond of braving the crowds on Black Friday at other stores, we're going to try something different... we're going for a bike ride!

Many of you probably recall our famous Guilt Reduction Rides, which used to be held on Thanksgiving Day.  We took a hiatus from those the last few years, and now we're hoping you can join us on Friday instead.  Think about it... a bike ride in the fresh air, or sitting in traffic, fighting your way to some big box store sale?

We'll leave from the shop at 10:00am, so please try to get here a bit ahead of that.  Our destination is the train station in downtown Herndon.  We'll have coffee and tea and perhaps some treats back at the shop.

Since we're a drop off point for donated food for the folks at the Committee Helping Others, we encourage everyone to bring some canned goods to help out those less fortunate!

Ride with us in the Vienna Halloween Parade October 25th!

It's that time of year again! Come and join us as we ride in the Town of Vienna Halloween Parade! We meet at the shop at 6:30, so we can make our way to our starting position by 7:00. If you've ridden with us before, you know it's a lot of fun. If you haven't tried it, you should.

After the ride come on back to the shop for some food and beverages... Mini Pasties from Pure Pasty, various snacks, and a variety of things to drink.

DIRCK HARRIS 1951 - 2017

On August 31st Dirck Harris, a customer and good friend of ours passed away. He was an avid cyclist, a member and president of the W&OD Trail Patrol. A frequent visitor at the shop, we always enjoyed his sense of humor and genuine kindness. A talented photographer with a true love of the natural world, he often answered our “what the heck is that?” questions about flora and fauna. Dirck will be sorely missed by all of us here at the shop. A good man, gone far too soon. His passing was due to mesothelioma, the result of serving in boiler rooms in the Navy many years ago. Donations may be made in his name at the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, and we welcome all of you to contribute. To that end, on Saturday, September 23rd, 10% of all proceeds at the shop will be donated to this fund. To donate directly, go to:
