2nd Annual Bike Tune-Up Fundraiser

Get your bike ready for cycling season and support the Peninsula Trails Coalition and local businesses at the same time!

Our 2nd Annual Bike Tune-Up Fundraiser is March 20-21 and April 10-11. For every bike tuned up on those dates, all seven North Olympic Peninsula bicycle shops, listed below, are donating 100% of the tune-up labor charges to the PTC (subject to some shop-specific details). All normal tune-up services will be available under this special fundraising arrangement.

The PTC uses these funds to support its volunteer trail maintenance activities, construction projects, and trail expansion advocacy.

The tune-up event offers a unique opportunity for cyclists to provide critical support to the PTC and support local businesses. Stop by any of these shops to have your ride put into great shape.

Thanks to these hardworking shop owners and bike mechanics for their service and generosity!

Tune-ups, payment options, and shop times vary. Contact your local bike shop for details.
