We've signed the lease on our new location!

We have finally signed the lease on our new location! After a painful process involving half a year of searching, dead ends, fake-outs, and delays, we've gotten The Bicycle Tree a new home at 17th and Flower in Santa Ana. This keeps us close to our previous Main St. location and brings us closer to Santa Ana College, Willard Intermediate, and other schools. We'll have more space here, too, with greater square footage and high ceilings.

We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to this process, and we thank everyone for their patience with this interruption to our services. We're still mapping out our build-out and move-in schedule, but we expect to be open in about a month. Alllllriiiiiggghhhht!

a day in the life: photos from our last open workshop day at 811 N. Main St.

On 3/2/17, we had our last open workshop day at our 811 N. Main St. location. To commemorate the occasion, we took portraits of every visitor and volunteer at our shop (or attempted to; we missed a few — it was busy!).

Every day at our 811 N. Main St. location has been different, and special. The photos below are from just one day, but through them, we want to express our gratitude for the many thousands of visitors, volunteers, and supporters who've made our years at 811 N. Main St. so wonderful. Thank you for learning with us, thank you for supporting us, thank you for letting us be part of your community. We can't wait to see you again soon at our new, bigger and better location! Stay tuned here, or visit our facebook, our Instagram, our tumblr, or our twitter to hear all the news about our new location as we announce it.

The book of The Bicycle Tree has just begun to be written!
