Our next big event is the storied Wrencher's Ball, on Friday, April 30 at the Olympia Transit Center. Since the early days of the Bicycle Commuter Contest (nobody can remember exactly when it started), volunteer wrenchers from area bike shops and beyond have been gathering to perform bike safety checks for registered participants in the BCC. Bring your bike to the Transit Center (at State Ave and Franklin St.) between 7:30 am and 3:30 pm, and either register for the BCC, or show us proof that you already have, and we'll check over your bike. This is a safety check with minor adjustments and a referral to a bike shop if you need major repairs. First come first served, and please pick up your bike by 5pm.
