Tacoma Bike is Hiring
We have openings for salespeople and experienced bike mechanics.

Each staff member at Tacoma Bike takes responsibility for a large part of the customer’s experience.  Applicants should be confident helping customers as well as doing excellent technical work.  Communication is key. We expect that all staff work with customers, coworkers, and suppliers, and that staff respectfully bridge differences in knowledge levels.  Applicants should be consistent and professional in their work and bearing.

If this sounds like you, let us know by delivering your resume (cover letter encouraged) to either store location, or to bikes@tacomabike.com

Free Classes at Tacoma Bike Proctor

DSC_0422Our first two months of drop-in classes have been a great success, and we’re happy to announce the second set of topics.  You’ll notice that some classes are offered more than once – for example Fixing a Flat happens the first week of each month. This gives new people opportunities to learn new skills, while folks who know what to do get a chance to practice or help others.  Additionally, you’ll see the first of a series of events leading up to the wonderful Courage Classic this summer. We’re planning rides, clinics, support, and classes to get anyone ready for one of the best cycling events of the year … more details to come!

Class sessions will be held Monday nights at 5:30 at Tacoma Bike Proctor.  You can RSVP on Tacoma Bikes Facebook.

Most classes will be taught by our own Peter Stanley, but about once a month there will be a guest instructor with a special class on something new.  Each class will be free-standing, with no experience necessary, feel free to call the Proctor shop (253 327 1118) with any questions.

Here’s the first two months’ classes:

Cold wet feet?

The solution for cold wet feet is simple, surely? Keep your toes warm and dry.

This is easier said than done this time of year. The road is almost always wet and if we’re really lucky we get to ride through standing water. So we’ve got a special offer on Sidi for the month of December to help you out…
