We are Hiring!!

Cycles PHL in North Philly is hiring!  We are a small (but mighty!) 3 year old service based bike shop adjacent to Temple University.  We pride ourselves on the bright, friendly and comfortable space we have created to serve the bicycles and riders of North Philadelphia.  This is a very fast paced work environment where the ability to juggle tasks while staying cool, calm and collected is very important.  Outside of the daily operations, we host and attend a number of community programs including youth and adult workshops, free repair days, film screenings, and more.  Interest in organizing and running these events is a huge plus!  With the size and pace of the space there isn’t much distinction between roles, so flexibility is key.

 

The goal of this position is to support the daily operations of the shop which includes repairs, sales, programming, and general upkeep.

 

Responsibilities include:

 

-Opening and/or closing efficiently and on time

-Checking in repairs in a thorough and meticulous way, making sure all needed parts are in stock or in special order list

-Providing professional, respectful and helpful service to the wide range of customers that come in

-Basic to advanced repairs on a diverse range of bikes, including walk-in services

-Refurbishing used bikes for sale in an efficient and cost effective way

-New bike assembly

-Maintaining clean and organized work and sales areas

 

The ideal candidate is someone who:

 

-Has 1-3 years professional experience in a bike shop

-Is interested in community development and/or youth education

-Is comfortable working unsupervised in a fast paced environment

-Loves spending their off-days on the bike, either on the road or the trails

-Is passionate about getting more people on bikes

 

Training will be provided for a candidate who will thrive in this community oriented space but lacks in mechanical ability.

 

This position is for part time employment.

 

Pay is competitive and experience dependent.

 

 

 

If interested, feel free to swing by the shop with a resume or email it to contact@cyclesphl.com

2018 ReLoad April Fools Fun Ride

It's almost spring, and that means it's time once more for one of Philadelphia's most fun bike events: The R.E.Load April Fools Fun Ride

Now in it's 14th iteration, the AFFR is basically a huge, city-wide scavenger hunt through Philadelphia. Riders will stop at various checkpoints, performing goofy, fun tasks and collecting points along the way. Some checkpoints are bars, some are parks, some are local businesses that support cycling. Typically, we've had all sorts of riders take part in this event - from messengers, to families on tandems and cargo bikes, to more casual riders. We're proud to have one of the longest running messenger events be so inclusive. Seriously, whether you're in it to win it, or just down for a nice leisurely ride to a few spots, you're guaranteed to have a blast!
