2nd Cycle is a community bike shop that aims to educate and advocate for all people riding bikes in the hilltop / Tacoma area through knowledge, shared workspace, literature, repair classes, youth programs, and community events. Every first and third Friday from 6pm-8pm 2nd cycle extends its hours of operation for “Ladies Night”. This event aims to provide space exclusive to women and girls who want to work on and learn more about bicycles. Ladies night is a drop-in style event that invites participants to show up whenever they like, and leave whenever they like.
At every ladies night, there is an offered “fix a flat” demonstration along with a more specific rotating demonstration that changes monthly. Topics covered include brake adjustments, gear adjustments, bearing system overhauls, how to clean and care for your bike and more!
All ages and experience levels are encouraged to attend! Bring your bike if you have one, or bring yourself and your curiosity if you don’t!
