I'm sure many of you have been to West Town Bikes. If you haven't you really should visit the shop or take a class at 2418 West North Ave.
Alex Wilson (a fellow Chainlinker) has created ( from their website http://westtownbikes.org/about
) "a community bicycle learning workshop. WTB offers bicycle mechanics workshops, youth programs... and a creative workspace for special bicycle building." It's mostly donations based so you can either throw them some cash in a donation jar or online at :http://westtownbikes.org/node/5239
I was there today getting my bike ready for the century ride tomorrow. They were amazing and helped explain to a newer rider how to tune up her bike and fix a bike computer.
Anyone else have to feel good stories about West Town? Alex, feel free to add some stuff I left out...
