Heads-up: Sale on Cycling Bags

Happy Thanksgiving! Just a heads-up, if anyone is looking for a good bag, Chrome Industries┬áis having a 25% off sale site wide. Their bags are more pricey, but they are water resistant, made from good quality materials, and super sturdy. Plus, and I can vouch for this personally, the bags come with a lifetime warranty. If there’s ever a problem with your bag, just give them a call and mail it to them. They’ll fix it (for free) ASAP.

Shop Closed 11/12/15

I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but we are still CLOSED this week (Nov. 12th). I wish I had better news, but the mold problem has been a ongoing issue. We can’t open until we are given permission by the SB Union facilities coordinator, which hasn’t happened yet. I’ll keep everyone posted. Please don’t give up on us! We are still and active club, albeit without access to the shop until this mess is cleared out.

I’m really sorry about this, but it’s out of our hands at the moment.

Shop Closed 11/5: Mold Cleanup continues…

Hey all,
Shop will remain closed this week (11/5) due to an ongoing mold removal operation. This summer we had several pipes burst in the basement flooding the area in front of the shop as well as soaking the majority of the books collected for donation by the club in the space next to ours. Unfortunately, the humid conditions in the Union turned all those soggy books into a breeding ground for mold. We have been asked by the building manager to cancel shop again this week as they continue their efforts to clean the club space.

I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused folks!

Shop Closed Oct. 29th

Hey all,
I hate to say it, but SHOP IS CLOSED TONIGHT (10/29). There’s a serious safety issue in the SB Union basement. The building managers have closed the entire club alley until it can be repaired. If all goes well, we should be open next week. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience during this trying time.
