If you’re participating in Bike to Work Day/Week next week, you’ll want to make sure your bike is in good working order beforehand.  Luckily, Rachel at Ace Hardware let us know about Ready Your Wheels Day at 5th Street Ace Hardware.  Stop in to the store between noon and 4 PM this Saturday for a free wheel adjustment, minor bike fixes, and some tips on how to keep your bike in good shape.  And to sweeten the deal, there will be refreshments and free bike lights and helmets!

Don’t worry if you can’t make it this Saturday, as these bike clinics will be held every two weeks during the summer.

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!
