ROWEROWA SZKOLA IS HERE!

Rowerowe Szkola

Introducing ROWEROWA SZKOLA - (Thanks to all the folks who helped us out on the correction). Means "BICYCLE SCHOOL" in Polish in honor of the neighborhood. We are a full service center to empower you with everything you need to understand and command the maintenance and operation of your bicycle(s). With the deep deep talent pool we have here, just about every question you can muster can be answered. Additionally we provide consultation to help you use bicycles in conjunction with your current transportation choices or to help you make bicycling your primary choice. Many of us here are year round commuters and we know this city well. We will also be hosting evening Q&A's with local messengers to really help you get the perfect routes and advice.

We will be having these structured classes for up to 4 people Mon. through Wed. evenings from 6 to 8 pm usually. These classes are:

Wheel Building

In addition to these scheduled and structured classes, we also offer the opportunity for one-on-one or small group classes during our open hours from 10 to 5 Mon. through Thurs. and 10 to 3 on Saturdays. Say you just want to learn derailleurs or want help with getting started commuting - just ask - we will be available to custom tailor instruction for you and or yours. These available hours will begin on Monday, Nov. 7th.

We LOVE doing this, and are excited to help you get as excited about cycling as we are. (Within limitation - some of us are truly nuts for bikes. But we can take you to crazy town if you like.)

The other reason we created this space is to provide a place for the cycling community to get together for events. Bike movies, club meetings, ride stops and starts and in-betweens, art events - you name it. Even local breweries have found our new space to be an excuse to enjoy their offerings and camaraderie (like we need an excuse) with special tastings, etc. If you have an event you would like to schedule, get in touch and we can help make it happen.

We are excited to announce that our first event/ Grand Opening will be the evening of FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18TH , 8pm with the launch of the newest issue of COG MAGAZINE. On display will be artwork from the creators of COG, delicious beer from STONEFLY BREWERY , and GOLDSPRINT ROLLER RACING for all comers to turn themselves inside out on. Time to let the trash talk fuel your legs to victory or mush against your favorite opponents and as of yet undiscovered new friends - sprints are truly a spectacle!

The best way to get ahold of us for scheduling classes and events is 414 384 2236, ext 1007. Or email me, at bikeschool@benscycle.com. Either way I can confirm your requests in a timely manner.

Hope to see you soon!

Got a certificate as a Xmas gift from the wife (love ya, Hon) for the Comprehensive class in February, but the dates are all Thursdays, not Wednesdays. Is that right?
