Womens/Trans/Femme Night is every other Thursday from 6 to 8:30 PM. Check the calendar for specific dates.
A Space Just For Women
On Thursday afternoons from 6:30 - 9pm, Franklinton Cycle Works hosts a women-only shop night for everyone who identifies as a member of the women/trans/femme community.
Mechanical work has traditionally been viewed as a male occupation and the bike scene is (unfortunately) no exception. Many shops are still dominated by male culture, but that doesn't mean women aren't interested in cycling or bike repair.
Women/Trans/Femme Night creates a space just for women so that at least once a week women won't have to endure the consequences of dominant male culture like "mansplaining."
If you are part of an organization serving a specific demographic, knowledgeable about bicycle repair, and interested in an open shop night, please contact us about using our shop space.
