31-Hour Bike Repair-a-thon and Paint-Your-Bike Day


In case our regular hours never work for you, or in case you just need to do a marathon session at the shop to finally get your bike built up or repaired, BikeWorks South is open from Saturday, June 8 from 10am until 5pm on Sunday, June 9. Shop time is by donation! (Regular prices apply on bikes and parts.) Come at 1pm. Come at 6pm. Come at midnight. Come at 5am! We'll be open, and ready to help you.

(We might be a little bit groggy by 4am... you may wish to bring your marvellous volunteers treats and a hot drink when they're helping you with your bike.)

We're going to set up racks and hangers outside for you to paint your bike! EBC members get a 10% discount at The Paint Spot (a block away). No painting in our shop proper (fumes!), but we'll have space out back. Please bring your own safety equipment (air masks, eye protection) and be considerate of others.

Strip your bike, paint it, go for dinner, come back and put it back together. Woo!*

(*If you paint your bike this quickly, it's probably going to be kind of sloppy. If that's all you want/you don't care about the fine details, then do it! But please don't expect to be able to fully strip your bike, do a professional paint job, and rebuild your bike in 31 hours. You might have to finish a different day.)
