Bike workshops for chicks
I DEFINITELY need to check these out soon: two ongoing bike repair workshops run for and by women - the occasional male mechanic on hand.....
For someone who loves all-things-bike as much as I do, its embarrassing how little I know about how to deal with them. There's always been "someone else" who can fix stuff for me....generally, though not always, a dude.
But theres really no excuse, with these two relatively local resources, Bitchen Kitchen and The Bike Oven XX. Bike wrenching, tea/snacks, and chatting w/ other ladies who love bikes.
Okay, the "relatively" part is kinda my excuse, being car averse, its a bit of a haul to the east side. Wish there was a bike kitchen closer to Santa Monica....hmmm.....
Bike Oven XX meets every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, 1:00 - 4:00 Next one meets August 12th.
And Bitchen (gotta go just for the name!) meets every Monday nite at the Bicycle Kitchen, 6:30 - 9:30.
