Broadway Bikes is Closed on Friday 1/20

Hear Our Voice, by Liza Donovan

HEAR OUR VOICE, by Liza Donovan (http://theamplifierfoundation.org/#download)

We close our doors on Friday, January 20th in solidarity with every person, organization, and business in the United States who refuse to continue business as usual under the incoming Trump/Pence Presidency.

Broadway Bikes has worked daily since 1972 to support our community with excellent service in bicycle repair, sustainable transportation and recreation, and protecting worker rights and access to business ownership. On January 20th we will support our community by closing our doors in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, National Women’s Liberation Movement call to strike, the marches protesting the Presidential Inauguration, and the growing list of social justice organizations fighting for human rights.

We refuse to normalize this presidency and its attacks on Black Lives Matter and people of color, immigrants, indigenous peoples, people of all faiths, particularly Muslim, the LGBTQIA community, those with different physical abilities, women and non-binary folks, those without financial security, and all the intersecting identities that make up our community and our country.

We apologize for any inconvenience that today’s closure has caused. We will resume business on Saturday, January 21st, and we are proud to give you 10% off parts and accessories to those on their way to, coming back from, and those in support of the local and National Women’s Marches. Many of our staff will also be in attendance of these marches. As Dr. King said, “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.”

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

-Dr. Marin Luther King Jr.

Best of love and solidarity to all of you as we remember and honor Dr. King today.

We’re HIRING!

About Broadway:

We’re a collectively run and locally owned bicycle shop that has been in operation since 1972. A subset of workers own and democratically manage the business. As a full-service bike shop, we both repair and sell new and used bikes. Our tools and space are also made available for rent, so folks can come in and fix their own bikes by themselves or with one-on-one assistance from a mechanic. In the evenings we offer classes on the topic of bicycle maintenance and repair. Several times throughout the year, we provide on location mechanical services for local business and organizations. Also we are proud to offer a $15 per hour starting wage.

Walking into a bicycle shop for the first time can be an intimidating endeavor for many, which is why Broadway strives to create a welcoming environment for all persons that come through our door.

Job Description:

We are hiring for a bicycle mechanic whose responsibilities also include customer service and sales. This is a full-time (~40) hours per week from February — April 2017 (start dates vary from early Feb to the start of April and full-time does not begin until April) through the end of October 2017 with the expectation to work one and sometimes two weekend days. This is a fast paced work environment that often requires workers to jump back and forth between the roles of mechanic and salesperson many times over the course of a shift. Employees are hired “at-will” but due to the seasonal nature of the business there is a period which usually begins at the start of November when little to no hours will be available.
It is NOT a prerequisite that you have previous shop experience, only that you have a passion for bicycles and working on them. We will provide the necessary training in all aspects of the position. We encourage people of color, LGTBQ folks and women (including transwomen, nonconforming, and nonbinary folks) to apply.

If you are interested in applying please fill out the BroadwayBicycleSchoolApplication2017 and drop it by the shop or email it to broadway@broadwaybicycleschool.com
