And you can bike there easily too!
This week I needed brake work done on my car. My normal place for repairs, Vina Auto on 26th and Emerson, was full. But when the brakes were acting up as badly as they were, I couldn't wait. Quite a few northside friends had "checked in" at Nghia's Auto Service Center on Facebook, and I had heard plenty of praise for Nghia and his work. In fact, that link will take you to a Google search result for Nghia's Auto, in which there isn't a single negative review. His work was fast, reasonably priced, and high quality.
I was near the Irving Triangle on my bike when he called, so I mapped out my route back to my car. The trip was 2.75 miles, and took me only 13 minutes. From that perspective, it looks like you can get just about anywhere in NoMi by bike in 15-20 minutes.
