Ladies Nights will be held on the fourth Wednesday of every month and are meant to facilitate a collaborative learning environment where female cyclists and others--looking for something a little different than the usual male-dominated vibe of the shop--can come to practice bicycle mechanics, share skills, volunteer, purchase used parts and refurbished bicycles, and discuss the awesomeness of all things bike related.
Open shop rules apply, therefore anyone wishing to work on a personal bicycle or project must be a Green Options Buffalo member or purchase a day pass. Memberships start at just $25 dollars for the year and can be purchased at the shop or online. As always learning through volunteering is encouraged and free.
