Good Karma Bikes is excited to announce that Women’s Night is back! Our goals for this program will emphasize inclusion, access, education, and community. Hosted By Women, For Women, we will emphasize basic skill development in roadside maintenance and cycling safety for commuters, road cyclists, casual weekend riders, or those getting back into riding. Bring your own bike to work on or practice skills on one of ours. Space is limited! 

There is no cost to attend. We just ask that you pay it forward at some point – share a skill or act of goodwill! Of course, we gladly accept donations!
