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.

Spring is nigh! As the bike lanes slowly peek out from beneath the snowbank’s encroachment, it’s time to start thinking about polishing up that bike that’s been sitting in storage all winter, or that poor bike left locked up outside all winter, or the winter beater that’s been encrusted in salt. Whatever the state of your bike, let’s get you ready to ride in time for that first truly warm day!

If you have any questions, please contact Annamaria by email. We hope to see you on Saturday, March 30th from 1pm-4pm for the next instalment of WTF Day at SantroVélo! For up-to-date info regarding activities and opening hours, check out the SantroVélo Facebook page.
