Mister Nutter Cycling Caps

We've recently started carrying a new line of cycling cap here at Broadway Bicycle School. Mister Nutter is a local artisan who specializes in hand sewn wool cycling caps that are made from recycled garments (suits and shirts etc.). They are beautifully crafted and are, for the most part, one of a kind. They will retail for $30 but for this week only you can pick one up for $25! Come on by and try one on!

Best Place To Learn How To Fix Your Own Goddamn Bike...Who Knew?!

The folks at the Boston Phoenix think we're the bee's knees! We've been teaching the cyclists of Cambridge and Boston and beyond to fix their bicycles themselves for over 35 years. Looks like someone noticed.

Thanks Boston Phoenix! Stop in and we can teach you to fix a flat tire or true your wheel sometime. Or better yet, sign up for one of our classes. You'll be glad you did.

That sticker sure looks nice in the window!

Extended Summer Hours

Our hours officially changed today for the summer. We are now open every weekday at 8am! Stop by on your way to work or school - we will be here!

Part Of The Week!

The drawer containing our cloth handlebar tape has been looking rather pathetic in recent years. Customers who come in to see our selection often go away empty handed or reluctantly buy synthetic cork tape simply because nobody has been making cloth tape in a wide variety of colors that's readily available. Well, thanks to Newbaums we have 14 new colors of cloth handlebar tape in stock. And what's really exciting to us is that Newbaums cloth tape is designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. and they are made with renewable resources and eco-friendly dyes! Stop in this week and take 15% off of every purchase of Newbaums tape. Sale ends Monday, April 12.

Its time to get off the sidewalks and bike paths and ride in the streets! Join our mechanic Dan on a slow paced relaxed beginners ride Sunday April 25th from 1230pm-230pm. Helmets are a must, no exceptions, bring water and spare change for a stop at a local ice cream shop.

Learn the rules of the road and build confidence riding on two wheels along those inside four. Some of our riders from our last year rides became comfortable enough to stop using public transportation and started riding to work daily! Sponsored by the MassBike Spin Series.
