Masks are required inside our bike shop. Our paid staff is fully vaccinated, and we hope volunteers and customers are as well (find a free COVID vaccination nearby) .
However, we have a variety of people in our small shop every day. We try to stay physically distant when we can, but it is common to get close to each other when looking at or working on bikes together. Wear a mask over your mouth and nose when in the shop – we have extras if you forget yours.
Stay home if you don’t feel well. Volunteers, please let us know if you can’t make a planned shift (call 425-252-6952 or email ). We’ll manage without you.
Wash your hands. We have hand sanitizer and gloves in the shop, or you can use soap and water in our restroom.
Keep surfaces clean. Wipe down tools and surfaces at the end of your shift. We have disinfecting wipes and spray.
Air & ventilation: We open doors when weather permits to improve air flow. We have a commercial-sized air purifier running whenever the shop is open, along with fans as needed.
Capacity limits. We try to limit the shop to 5 people at one time. Volunteer work parties max out at 5 as well, plus one lead volunteer. Our garage space can be used for DIY repair projects without impacting shop capacity. If the shop is full, please wait in the garage until someone leaves.
