Homespun Bikes is flying the coop! Yesterday 5/26, was our last day at 494 Wesley Ave. We are looking for a new spot, but in the meantime will be doing some mobile repair, a little pop up wrench spot, and still organizing workshops and events. Stay tuned for dates and locations.
In the meantime, one of the Homespun founders, Ami (me!), will be riding 545 miles from SF to LA on the AIDS/Lifecycle on the big blue tandem that’s been hanging in the shop. If you’ve ever gotten help or advice or used the community pump or tools at the shop this is a great chance to give back. Chip in to support my ride with my good friend Mary Ann as we raise funds to make folks lives better every day through the direct services provided by the SF Aids Foundation.
And the last day our time in the sweet neighborhood on Wesley and Broolyn was made even sweeter by our first harvest of Homespun Honey from the roof of the shop. In the course of adding a box to make room for the growing hive, we skimmed off a bit of rogue comb and were able to share it with some neighbors at Leaning Tower Pizza and Lottie at Wesley Wash and Fold.
Yum. The bees had been feasting on the jasmine growing along the building, and the honey is amazing. It’s been a wonderful time in this ‘hood, look out for our next incarnation!
