On the last Saturday of each month from 1pm-4pm, our community bike shop SantroVélo hosts a Women Trans* Femme (WTF) day. We welcome people who identify as female, transgender, non-binary, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine or feel that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson*, &/or femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics. If you self-identify as such, you are invited to come work on your bike, lend a hand or just hang out in a safe, gender positive space.
This month, we’ll be getting you winter-ready! We’ve already seen some of the first snow overhead, but it isn’t time to pack that bike away just yet!
If you’ve ever wanted to winter bike but don’t know where to start, November is the month to get that extra grease on your bike and throw on a few more layers of sweaters.
We’ll help you prepare for winter riding with tips on chain maintenance, winter tires, bike storage, what to wear to stay comfortable, and what roads are bike-friendliest when the snow’s up to your knees.
If you have any questions, please contact Annamaria by email. Hope to see you on Saturday, November 24 from 1pm-4pm for the next installment of WTF Day at SantroVélo! For up-to-date info regarding activities and opening hours, check out the SantroVélo Facebook page.
