Getting your bike ready for Bike to Work month

Knock on wood, winter is now behind us and the seasonal cyclist can now come out and ride and commute. For many, coming out of that winter hibernation can be difficult because your bike is just like it was when you put it away in the fall... in sick shape. Just because cash is tight these days doesn't mean you still can't get that mike tune-up. There are many places in the Boulder/Denver area that are helping folks learn how to tune up their own bikes or providing deep discounted tune-ups. Check out these Boulder/Denver bike resources

Community Cycles of Boulder
They provide $20 tune-ups at the Boulder Farmers market starting at 8am.
