I personally would bring it back to the shop that did the work.

A leak is not normal. Take it back and have them correct the problem at their own expense. You should not have to pay twice for the same thing...

How far away is the shop. I would call on Monday and ask them if they think it's okay to ride in. I would just wash the tire with soap and water to clean.

Took a closer look at the rear end this morning the nut on the side of the rear hub was only finger tight..... so this is where the leak was will have to call to see if safe to ride to the shop about 40 min in city traffic do not know how much has leaked out enough to leave a patch on the paper towel about 4 in in diameter

Wonder what else they didn't do correctly? I would make sure they go through it to see.
