The Watch City Bike Lab at the Charles River Museum is generously sponsored by the 128 Business Council - a example of their mission of "supporting the economy of the Route 128 West Corridor by providing commuters with alternative transportation options." Thank you, 128 Business Council!

Continuing the tradition of excellence in Waltham bicycling ventures dating back to the late 19th century, Watch City Bike Lab is a community bicycle workshop operating at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation.

We at the Museum are very excited to have this "group of friends from in and around Waltham who like bikes, like people, and want to help people learn to work on their own bikes."

They encourage you to visit them at the Museum, and they'll "give you free advice on whatever ails your bike and show you how to fix it. [They} can do repairs that don't require disposable parts (e.g. new brake pads or chains). For other repairs [they] can tell you what you need, and if you bring [them] the new parts, [they] can show you how to install them."

Learn more about the Watch City Bike Lab on their website and in the short interview below with two of the founders of Watch City Bike Lab that took place at the end of a busy Sunday running the Bike Lab right outside Museum's front door.

The Watch City Bike Lab are Martha Creedon, Alan Day, Leo Keightley, Jennifer Melot, Haink Tu, Consuelo Valdes, Nicole Waxmonsky, and Nathan Weston.
