This is a portrait of the Querencia community bike shop based in downtown Denton, TX. Their goal is not only to help people fix their own bikes, but to encourage the learning and teaching of new skills and helping people to break their dependency on motor vehicles. The Querencia community stretches across all walks of life. Anyone interested in working on bikes, regardless of their skill level, is welcome.
