The Open Garage – where staff, volunteers, and bike riders gather to help one another repair and restore bicycles – has NEW hours: Mondays and Fridays from 4:30-7:00 pm, and Wednesdays from 2:00-5:00.
Located in the back of Bike Newport’s headquarters at 62 Broadway in Newport, the Bike Garage is traditionally a bilingual gathering place for everyone who has, loves, wants to fix, and/or wants to learn about bikes.
While COVID-19 regulations have changed that dynamic by limiting the number of people who can be in the space at any given time, we have resumed hours with an inside/outside model. We can service a limited number of people at a time, while ensuring safe distancing and sanitation. Properly-worn masks are required by all at all times.
“The Wednesday daytime hours are completely new,” explains Director of Education, Clare Woodhead. “We expect these hours will make it possible for more community members to keep their bikes in good working order.”
Come by and give it a try!
