Welcome back inside BICAS!
(Limited services and masks required.)

Starting April 27th, BICAS will begin our Public Phased Reopening Plan, welcoming a limited number of customers into our warehouse to allow for adequate social distancing and spacing. Customers may enter the building for their shopping and browsing needs. We know how eager you’ve been to get a closer look at ALL the bikes we have inside. In this current phase we will also continue to offer gate service as well as our sliding scale repair services.

We appreciate your patience as we build capacity and prepare to move into our upcoming phases when we will be able to reopen our Community Tools, WorkTrade, and Community Service programs, eventually phasing out our Essential Repair Services. We are so excited to one day return to our guided approach to do-it-yourself bicycle repair which has been the cornerstone of our programming for decades.  Stay posted for announcements regarding these opportunities as well as upcoming classes and small events.
