Bike Shop Day @ Bucephalus Bikes

BIKE SHOP DAY is an all-day event to celebrate the unique culture of local independently-owned bike shops and their connection with their communities. Inspired by Record Store Day, the event was started in 2017 by the folks at 718 Cyclery in Brooklyn, NY. Bike Shop Day is about inclusiveness, a healthy lifestyle, and sustainable local business practices. We think it is a fabulous idea and a great fit for our shop, so we joined the celebration.

We’ll start the morning with coffee and bagels. And throughout the day, we’ll have giveaways and exclusive Bike Shop Day sales. We’ll offer a free flat tire clinic at 11 am and 2 pm. Join us for the fun and festivities. Support your local bike shop!

Anatomy of a Bicycle
Jan 14 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Anatomy of a Bicycle

Anatomy as in “the study of the structure or internal workings of something”. Bicycle Anatomy is a class that explains the systems that allow our bicycles to function. During this 90-minute class we will present and discuss the multiple components present in our bicycles. We will discuss in detail the structure and the components designed to help the rider enjoy this truly amazing invention.

The goal of the session is to reveal how these parts are designed to work safely and smoothly. In addition, we will demonstrate how to repair a flat tire.
The attendees will gain the knowledge to understand and diagnose common issues that may arise while using their bicycle.

Also, maintenance and care necessary for your bicycle will be discussed. You will have an opportunity to get your questions answered. This is a great introduction class for those who are interested in learning and understanding how their magnificent bicycle works.
A great class to build a solid foundation that will facilitate your knowledge about cycling in the future.
