Come to Dust Off Days for a free bike tune-up

Do you have a friend, co-worker or family member whose bike has sat neglected in the shed all winter? There’s no sense in leaving that bike unloved in a corner – bikes should be ridden! With the weather beginning to warm and (fingers crossed!) the wet season on its way out, what better time than now to drag that bike out of the shadows, dust off the cobwebs and lube the squeak out of that rusty chain? Join us at the Swedish Cultural Center on Saturday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a spring cleaning, bike tune-up event.


The first in a series of Dust Off Days, and just in time for Bike Month, the event will go as follows:

- Look for the bright gold Cascade tents in the Swedish Cultural Center parking lot, 1920 Dexter Avenue North.

- Place your bicycle in the trusty hands of the volunteer mechanics from Elliott Bay Bicycles, Montlake Bicycle Shop and WRENCH Bicycle Workshop.

- Mechanics will provide up to 20 minutes of free labor per bike, plus a diagnosis of those problems which cannot be addressed in the allotted time.

- Replacement parts will be available and helmets will be on sale for just $15 so bring cash.

- Your bike will be tuned and ready to go for Bike Month!


Special thanks to the Swedish Cultural Center, Elliott Bay Bicycles and WRENCH Bicycle Workshop for helping us launch the first Dust Off Days!
