Franklinton Cycleworks Upcoming Shop Closings

Hello wonderful volunteers, donors, and friends,

Just a note to let you know that Franklinton Cycleworks will be closed Thanksgiving weekend (Saturday the 24th) as well as the month of December 2012. We will be adding another double-armed stand and accompanying tool sets so that we can accomodate even more repairs during Open Shop. We will also be spending this time organizing tools, parts, and training new volunteers. We will re-open on Saturday, January 5th, 2013, operating under our new team system.

We still have a couple volunteer mechanic spots open on Team 1, which will run the shop the first Saturday of every month. If you have mechanic experience and want to commit to volunteer once a month, please email

We will be posting work day times on Facebook for the month of December, so if you would like to help us rearrange the shop, stay tuned to

Thanks again for all your support-- FCW is run entirely by volunteers, which is really something to be proud of. In other words, it wouldn't be possible without all of you! We look forward to working with you again in the new year.

We also need more volunteer mechanics for Team 3, which will run the shop the third Saturday of every month.  Email if you are interested.  Feel free to pass along these calls for volunteers to anyone you know who may be interested.
Thanks again,
FCW Team
