Borrow a Bike, Bring it Back
While the Bike Barn is closed for the season (April through October), make plans to visit us in 2014! A grant from the Women in Philanthropy group of the Martinsville Area Community Foundation is allowing us to update and upgrade the bicycles available to younger riders.
Take a ride on the Dick & Willie Passage! Bikes and helmets are available, free of charge, for use on the trail at the Doyle Street trail head. The Bike Barn offers 7-speed comfort bikes, 21-speed comfort and mountain bikes, children's bikes, one child trailer, and two tandems. Proposed hours for the 2014 season are:
3 p.m. to 6 or 7 p.m. Monday through Friday;
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and
1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their legal parent or guardian while riding an Activate bicycle. Helmets, provided for you, and closed toe shoes are required. Bring a photo ID. The Bike Barn is closed when it is raining, the temperature is below 60 degrees, and when there is a heat advisory. Up to the minute schedule changes are posted on the Twitter feed.
