Our buddy Timothy opens Cycle Chvrch Cycles in Petaluma!

CycleChVrch-2

Timothy Nicholls opened the roll up doors to his bike repair and sales shop in February 2017, contributing to the interesting new mix of businesses along Petaluma’s Second Street corridor. Cycle Chvrch Cycles has less of the feel of a typical bike shop, and feels more like an artist’s studio. Tim approaches his craft from a design perspective, refurbishing bikes with purposeful detail from carefully reconstructed mechanics to beautiful pinstriping work. He takes massive pride in his finished products and if you buy a bike from him, you can be sure he will be there to provide ongoing maintenance to your two-wheeled friend. Tim refurbishes bikes not just for sale but also donates to local organizations including COTS. You can find him most days from 11-7 in his shop, and also on social media @cyclechvrchcycles. Look for the handpainted signs (painted by Tim) on the nearby corners to show you the way.

Aaron Edge VS MS!

“AE VS MS Via Light”
The Photography of Aaron Edge
Western Bikeworks, Portland, OR

Aaron Edge has been creating art and taking photographs since the mid-80s, has art directed for magazines, weekly newspapers, record labels, small design firms as well as designed at Wieden+Kennedy. This photography show, made up of 72 separate 4×6 postcards, showcases the artist’s interest in grainy, high contrast black and white imagery. Each piece, sold for only $10 (with proceeds given to the Portland Bike MS chapter), can then be sent ’round the world, reminding folks that MS awareness is on our minds and help is in our hearts. Aaron was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in March of 2013, since then he has struggled with his creativity and mobility. This is his first solo art show in over 20 years.

I believe this show is up for a few more weeks! Go check it out!
