Bicycle Roots Second Birthday Party Flyer

We’re Turning Two!

Two years ago (has it really been that long?) Bicycle Roots celebrated its Grand Opening in Crown Heights. Since then we’ve helped you start riding, keep riding, and take your riding to the next level. We appreciate your patronage- and now we’re throwing a party to say Thanks!

On Sunday June 7th, from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, we’re having a party to celebrate our Second Birthday. This party is also the unofficial after-party for both the Red Hook Bike Jumble and the Tour de Brooklyn. And for even more good...

Bike Repair Classes Start Tonight

Vintage Bicycle Repair

We’re excited to announce that now you can learn Bicycle Repair and Maintenance every Wednesday night at Bicycle Roots! Starting tonight, we are offering a course of six classes, with each class covering a different topic.

Our first class, taking place TONIGHT, Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00pm, is “Winter Riding 101.” We will cover basic bicycle maintenance, essential winter riding accessories, and how to dress comfortably for safe and fun winter riding!

Our classes are aimed at beginners and are open to everyone. There is a $10.00 fee to attend each class, but if you make a purchase after the class we will apply the fee towards your purchase.

Give A Bike. Get A Bike.

Your kids want bikes for the Holidays. But what will you do with the bikes they’ve outgrown? Did you know that you can donate your children’s old bikes to local kids in need? By doing so, you will make space in your home, and more importantly, you will share the gift of cycling with a child who would not be able to experience it otherwise.

This holiday season, Bicycle Roots has partnered with Baby G’s Community Toy Drive to collect bikes and toys that we will distribute to local kids in need. Now we need your help to make our toy drive a success!

Now through December 22nd, donate a used kid’s bike at our store and get 10% off your purchase of a new kid’s bike!
