1. Social Hub Overhaul Update

As you probably know, the social hub is undergoing an overhaul. Here is a quick update on what has already happened:

  • Magazine subscriptions have been ordered and some issues have started to trickle in
  • New t-shirts and other awesome bike merch has been ordered and should be in next week
  • Many books have already been acquired and a huge massive order for more has been placed
  • Plants are on their way early next week
  • Internet has been ordered and should be up and running by August 7 (the party day, see #3 below)
  • Unfortunately, we are still searching for good bistro tables from a local source… the search continues

So come on in, check out the social hub renovations in action, grab a book, and hang out!

2. Bike Building Blitz Party!!! Wednesday, July 28, 10am-6pm
We take in a lot of bike donations and to all those who have donated a bike or parts or a bike in parts, thank you.  There is a lot of good bike out there looking for a little love to get back on the road.  But building bikes while trying to empower cyclists with a little DIY is too much for our volunteers to handle during open shop hours.  We also find that people who are looking for a reliable and affordable bike find our selection of ready-to-go bikes a little thin. The solution we have come up with is…

Bike Building Blitz Party

3. Volunteers Needed: Party Planning!

Do you like to party? Do you like to plan? More importantly: do you like to plan parties??? If so, we need your help!!!

We are planning another launch party for our overhauled social hub. So far, this is what we have: easy group ride and an open house in the afternoon, alley cat race around dusk, and then a massive party in the space at night.

Sounds like fun, right??? If you can help us plan, publicize, and/or party, send Michelle an email at michelle.stamour@gmail.com

4. Bike-In Movie Night (The Limey): Thursday July 22, 9:30pm

Thursday night bike-in movies have become quite the tradition at ‘Sauce these days. Someone picks a fun movie, we haul out the couch into the driveway, we project the movie on to the wall outside, and tada! You have an awesome Thursday night!

What’s in store for this week’s movie? The Limey.
