Keeping Seattle Rolling Since 1994

Archive for the month “February, 2012”

What a week!

Phew! Well, save for a few minor computer/printer glitches, the doors opened at 1109 N 35th in FreWall or Frollingstone, or whatever you want to call it, without a problem! Thanks to everyone for their support, and especially to our staff (old and new) who have been working so hard to make this happen. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by yet, come say hi when you have a chance.

Steve thinks he’ll be relaxing next month with a trip to Costa Rica. He doesn’t realize that this is what we signed him up for:

 

Shhhh! It’s a surprise!

That’s right, we’re opening a second Recycled Cycles location in Fremont! It will be a lot like the Recycled Cycles you know and love on Boat Street, just on a smaller scale. The new 2500-square-foot space is attached to our warehouse where you’ll find Recycled Cycles stalwarts Scott, Reed, Paul, Blaise and many others. It’s a great spot with great neighbors: Fremont Brewing Company, Pacific Inn, RoRo BBQ and Bikram Yoga Seattle. And of course, it’s just a couple of blocks from the Burke-Gilman Trail, so please stop to say hello by if you are riding through the neighborhood!

Grand Opening Feb. 15th

Address/Phone: 1109 N. 35th Street, Seattle / (206) 397-4286

Hours: M-F 10am-7pm; Sat/Sun 10am-6pm

Major Spin

If you’ve got some free time on Thursday, February 16, skip happy hour and make your way to Allstar Fitness in West Seattle for the 2nd Annual Major Taylor Project Spin-A-Thon. Last year the group blew away their $5000 goal and raised $12,000 to support the Major Taylor Project. This year their goal is $16,000.

If you’re not familiar with the Major Taylor Project, it’s a year-round program run by the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation focused on bringing youth from diverse communities into the sport of cycling. It’s named after Marshall “Major” Taylor, the first African American pro cyclist. They run five after-school bike clubs in low income neighborhoods in and around south King County.

The Spin-A-Thon is planned for Feb. 16 from 5pm-8pm at Allstar Fitness, 2629 SW Andover St. To register for the Spin-A-Thon, contact Ed Ewing at 206-778-4671 or email ed.ewing@cascadebicycleclub.org or Emma Epstein at 206-957-6960 or email mtpa@cascadebicycleclub.org.  And if you can’t participate, you can always sponsor someone – Major Taylor kids will be there spinning too, so show them your support!
