One of the perks Patagonia riders were given this week was the opportunity to get a free bike tune-up on Tuesday to make the crank turning even more joyous. The grease-monkeys in the company generously donated their lunchtime hour to help the rest of us who don’t have the skills or the tools to properly care for our bikes.
Big thanks to the Ventura bike tune-up crew for all their hard work: Chad P, Damien F, Steve R, Maggy W, Steve S, Stuart B, Alex Y and Mike B.

From localcrew: Up here in Renoland, the great greasy light of bike love shone upon us as well. At left is a list of the week’s events, complete with an ample sprinkling of tune-ups, safety tips, and how-to clinics.
Many kind thanks go to Matt and the Patagonia grease-monkeys for making Bike to Work Week something to get excited about.
