Shop Schedule

Got a stuck seatpost? Well, here’s 14 ways from good ol’ Sheldon Brown to deal with it.

Those Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

This may be the mildest, loveliest summer we can recall in recent years, but with the sweltering days of August finally upon us, several coordinators have taken flight from the Texas heat and headed north for some cool summer breezes. All that is to say, it’s a light month of shops at the Yellow Bike Project. And if you’ve been thinking about becoming a coordinator, there’s no time like right now to get involved. After all, the more coordinators we have, the more shops we can run!

Yellow Bike Youth is Accepting Registrants!

The plans for the kids program are coming together and it’s time to sign up for the first fall session. Details are available on our website, but here’s the long and short of it.

The program will be for 5-8th graders and runs from September 3rd to October 17th. We will ride bikes to explore all the fun spots to stay cool and see Austin from a human-sized perspective. Kids will learn the basics of bike safety, simple repairs, and all the good bike routes to get to their favorite places.The after-school program will be free for students, but all donations are appreciated and will go directly to support the youth program. The Yellow Bike Project will provide bikes, safety equipment, and snacks. Students should bring appropriate, comfortable clothing and a good attitude.

To apply, simply fill out the registration form and bring it into the shop during any open hours. (We have printed copies at the front desk if you lack a printer.)

For the month of August. YBP sets its schedule on the first Tuesday of every month at our Collective Meeting. Schedule below continues through Friday, August 29th.
