Ride for a Reason Kickoff Party! Friday, December 2nd 6pm-8pm @ Tip Top Bike Shop!
Ride for a Reason is an annual bike ride from Oakland to Sacramento to draw attention to the ongoing K-12 education funding crisis, and also to raise funds for school enrichment programs. Last year, 260 riders pedaled to Sacramento and raised $106,000 which was shared by six local public schools. Riders are Oakland parents, community members and students who rally together for this beautiful bike ride. We’ll have music, snacks, and early bird registration pricing. We’d love to answer any questions you have about the ride. This year, we have three rides to choose from: 45, 60, and 109 miles. We provide all the support you will need to go the distance on April 29th, including training rides and coaching which starts in January.
For more information on Ride for a Reason or to register online, check out r4rschools.org.

Hello folks, if you think you need a tune-up, or any repair you are welcome to bring in your bicycle when we are open so a mechanic can assess the work needed on your bicycle. We are currently booking tune-ups 1 week out. (mid-Nov). Based on the assessment we can either schedule a tune-up for a future date, or if less work is required take in your bicycle as a walk in. We can take care of basic walk-in repairs any day we are open, again these are on a first come, first served basis. We tend to fill up each days schedule within the first four hours of opening. Any questions please come in, or give us a call. Thank you, and keep the rubber-side down.
