Posted on January 18th, 2017 by Broadway Bicycle School
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.”
