Thanks for the bike check!
We would like to drop off a bike for parts. When would that be possible?

Many Thanks to Ryan and the people of Esperanza for their help in making a cart for my boy Zeke. He is still not sure about it, but I'm hoping...
This place is Great!! The team helped me with my bike with some great adjustments!! Thank you a bunch!!
I went to Esperanza’s Community Bike shop today and they were amazing. I had no idea how to do pretty much anything with a bike. I had been given a used bike for my son and it needed all kinds of things! New tire, brakes fixed, wheel truing, a new reflector, and lots of adjustments. I was able to get all of that fixed myself, with the help of many many people that work there (and every single one of them was awesome!) so thank you so much! I learned a ton and will definitely go back!
Thank you Esperanza for helping me find two bike wheels. I really appreciate you! This is what one became for Valentine’s Day! Thank you!
Hi! Do you guys have any upcoming classes on how to change a bike tire and general bike maintenance?

Two of the new Scouts from Troop 717 wanted to say thank you for helping them with their bicycles!!
Is the bike valet still happening at Balloon Fiesta for the Freedom 4th event? I didn't see any mention of it here or on the City site. Thanks!
