Fourth of July Parade Ride for Recumbents

The Fairfax Recumbent Riders group has been accepted to ride in this year's parade. 
All recumbent cyclists are encouraged to join us on Tuesday July 4th 2017 at 8:45am for our sixth participation in the Fairfax City Independence Day Parade, the largest in Northern VA.  Or you can meet us at the shop at 7:30am to ride down to Fairfax for the parade.
Do you know a veteran with a trike? Ask him 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 him.
Don't own a recumbent yourself? Contact us - there's a good chance we'll be able to provide a loaner for you.
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.
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). 
More details in the next week or two - save the date.

Brompton Maintenance Class - Monday, June 5th - 7:00pm!

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.
