Queers & Gears

This program serves the LGBTQ+ community in partnership with the LGBTQ+ Coalition! Come together in a safe and affirming space where you can receive free guided repairs on your bicycle and 10% off of new parts and accessories. We’ll also hold space for discussion, and when the weather is nice we’ll go on a guided bike ride protected by TCW allies.

Join us on the 4th Thursday of each month from 5-7 PM at the Queen Street Community Center and Bike Shop!
