The EAB Shop has continued to grow this past month. Our online presence has been attracting more customers. This month we have sold 6 bikes to new customers. The EAB Shop Online Store is continuing to grow and we are adding more products every week. If you are interested in purchasing from us, you can secure your purchase online and pick up at the shop on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm and on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 9:00am -2:00pm.
Starting this month the EAB Shop will be open on Saturdays! The 1st and and 3rd Saturday of each month the shop will be open from 9:00am to 2:00pm for normal shop business. If you have a bike that you would like to work on, need service for your bike, looking to purchase a refurbished bike or gear or interested in volunteering for one of the many projects we have, please fill out our New Volunteer Form.
Family Group Rides are starting this month as well. The 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, we will host a no-drop, family-friendly, group ride. We will meet at the shop starting at 8:00am and ride out at 9:00am for a 5-8 miles ride around the area. During the preparation time we ask all participants over the age of 4 to wear a mask and physically distance themselves from people outside of their family group when possible. If you or anyone in your household have been exposed to Covid-19 in the past 14 days or experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, we ask that you please wait till everyone if your home is well before you mingle and ride with us. Please check out our Shop Community Calendar to see the events happening at the EAB Shop.
Our Volunteers are working very hard on a number of improvement projects around the shop. This past month we have demoed the wooden fence that was between the shop and the basketball courts. They have also cleared out the grapevine that was engulfing the fence. We are working to clear this area out to create The EAB Outdoor Cafe. The plan is to make this space a place of welcome for anyone wishing to come and sit for a few minutes and talk bikes or just life. The project will include; installing a canopy for shade and protection from the elements, built-in seating and planter boxes along the fence line, a bike wash/repair station, a smoothie / coffee / tea bar and a painted mural. To accomplish this we need your help. We need your time, we need your skills, we need your unused materials, and we may need a little bit of help financially. Saturday September 5th we will be working on clearing the rest of the grapevine and debris from the area. We hope to build one planter box with seating and a bike wash station with the recycled wood we have from the fence demo. On September 19th, the plan is to clear out the contents in the shop to rearrange the shop. We need space for bikes to be on display and for our mechanics stations to move. We have lots of items that need to be moved to storage and new storage shelving to be made.
