(BROOKLYN, NY) It’s been a long winter, and whether you braved the cold and snow or left it locked to a pole, your bike definitely needs some love. Not to fear: This Sunday, bring your bike to The Diamond as we join forces with special guests Time’s Up to host a free “Spring Tuning” in the backyard. We provide the tools, bike stands, a washing station (w/ parts-washing station), and a couple of bike mechanics to help you himself; you bring that sorry-assed ride of yours and some gumption, and you’ll be back in the saddle in no time! And drink liberally: Your bar proceeds will benefit Time’s Up!
