Spring Dream Team
Spring will be here before you know it, and we are looking to add a few good humans to the team. Dash is a community-oriented shops, and we believe that cycling belongs to everyone from bike-share riders, to all-season commuters, to the competitive cyclists, to the kids with training wheels. Do you like working with people? Can you handle a tune-up, explain frame geometry, and lead a group ride? Shoot us an email, or stop by the shop during regular business hours, and let's talk shop.

Winter Hours, Updated
By popular demand, we have decided to re-open Sundays through the winter. Come say hi!
January 3, 2019
We're leaving the house with gloves most days at this point in the year, and things have slowed down here. This weekend will be our last Sunday at the shop for the season, and Dash will be closed on Sundays and Mondays through the winter. Please stop by during regular shop hours, Tuesday thru Saturday 11am-5pm.
The Nitro Bar will also be open slightly shorter hours through the winter, closing at 5pm instead of 7.

Summer Group Rides with Dash
Introducing the West Side Group Ride, a casual "no-drop" group bike ride from Dash, out along the Woonsaquatucket River Greenway and back with a stop for ice cream at the halfway point. Meet up at our shop at noon on the fourth Sunday of the month, all summer long. Our first group ride is June 24th; we'll plan the route all you need to bring is a helmet and good vibes. We will continue rides into autumn and beyond, as long as the weather holds. We have added Bianchi Bicycles Field Day to our group ride scheduled for Sunday, September 23rd.

Don't Steal Bikes, Bro
We caught a bike thief today—this was not the first we have caught, and it will not be the last. We understand that theft is an unfortunate reality of life in the city, and we have a zero tolerance policy. In this case, with the help of our neighbors at The Nitro Bar we chased the thief down, retrieved the bike, and let the local authorities handle the rest. The point is worth repeating—don't steal bikes, it will not go well for you.
