The Bike Cave opened in Summer 2017. Since their log was last updated (Dec 2017), they have had 80 users, not including people who have used the space during events. An estimated 80% of users brought bikes, totaling approximately 60-70 bikes.

Due to weather and limited shop hours, they've only been open a short amount of time, but there has been high interest in the space.
