A very satisfied customer!

One of our favorite bike projects to date! And one of our most satisfied customers who got to see his dream bike come alive. We started with a used Marin frame that was donated and Michael had it professionally repainted. He brought it back to us and we built it up for him using a mix of new and used parts. It's a speedy, light, yet comfortable hybrid with great lines. And check out that fork! Very cool. 

New motor-cycle! And a clean one at that!

The newest in a fleet of motor-cycles was finished last week by Luis and Simon, who took a crusty and corroded donated bike and overhauled the entire thing. After that, the engine was installed from the box. Impressive two-week project! 

Beautiful custom single speed project

Leo Moya (with much help from his friend Esteban Torres) stripped, painted and reassembled this bike at our shop in a matter of days. It's one of the coolest looking bikes we've seen this year! Great work, guys!

Seasons change and so do our hours

Farmers Market season is over and with the time providing less light in the evenings, we're shifting our shop hours to:

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1 - 7 p.m.

Thanks for your support!

Springs Festival

Operation Bicycle volunteers Esteban and Irving (not pictured) and staff member Simon parked 30 bikes during the festival.  
Staff member Adrian partnered with the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition to safety check 15+ bikes for the rodeo.

Teens and their motor-cycles . . .

Kurtis, Luis and Francisco have all converted their bikes to gas-powered cycles totally on their own. They use them daily for school and work commutes as well as out-of-town excursions. Nice work, guys!

Busy night a the market ... again!

For the third week in a row, the Sonoma Farmers Market bike valet filled to capacity! This partnership between the market, the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition and Teen Services Sonoma has grown steadily over the past three years and is hitting its peak. Come visit us next week! Same time, same spot. Thanks for the support. 

Teen staff and volunteers ready for more bikes.

Ok, that's enough bikes. We're out of space!

Two SVHS seniors complete projects!

Martin Velazquez and Jose Napoles both presented their senior projects this week in front of judges at Sonoma Valley High School. The two became the fourth and fifth seniors to chose bicycle-related projects and work with us at Operation Bicycle. This year, both Martin and Jose chose to take bikes that had been donated, strip them down to the frame, overhaul and/or replace all parts, and then put them back together. Congrats, guys! You both showed great perseverance!!
