Recycle Ride this weekend

It’s been a while since we’ve had a community ride, so we’re bringing it back this weekend for a special tour from Denton’s square over to the city recycling facility for a group tour. You can RSVP to the Facebook event here, or just show up at Cedar and W. Oak on Saturday morning.

square move

Last weekend, we loaded up some cargo bikes and trailers and moved our tools and some basic parts to our new shop on the Denton square, on Cedar St (around the corner from Banter). Like the last move, we did a human-powered move via bikes, and we snapped a few photos of the process:

Querencia to expand to Denton square

Since we started in 2006, we’ve operated out of backyards, garages, and the Rubber Gloves space on Sycamore St. We’ve always worked outside, and our parts and volunteers have weathered the elements, all year round. In one sense, working outdoors connects us directly to the world and many fantastic days. In another sense, the brutal … Continue reading

Shop canceled tonight

It’s frozen and pretty sketchy riding this week, so tonight’s shop is cancelled. If Saturday isn’t crazy cold, maybe we can be open.

pegboard progress

After 3 years of very disorganized tools scattered across multiple boxes, having pegboard is truly amazing.

Calling all bike trailers, help us move!

Calling anyone with a trailer or cargo bike in DFW: we need your help.  Badly. We’re trying to move our sizable inventory of bikes, parts, and tools this weekend.  And we’d like to do it all by bike. To be honest, we have almost no bike trailers to use, and we badly need more if … Continue reading
