Update 4/9/19: We are about a month out, and preparing our workshop at bike!bike!, which will be a moderated discussion of what other co-ops are doing to keep their spaces safe for all people. It’s going to be a heavy one, but it is important for us to get together and discuss our various journeys through the cycling cooperative world, and share our experiences. Please consider giving to our campaign to help us continue to grow and learn in this community!
Update 3/28/19: Thanks to Marie Kittredge, Mike Gliebe, Michaela Stiber, Terry Koch, James Mahon, and a few anonymous donors for you generous donations! We are up to $223! We have a long way to our goal, and every little bit helps. Please consider helping reach that goal!
Bike!Bike! is an annual gathering organized by and for community bicycle projects. The conference is a space for participants from shops and related advocacy groups to converge in a different city each year over a 4 day period to have workshops and strengthen our social network.
Bike!Bike! conferences are held nationally once a year in a different city in North America; regional conferences can be held anywhere, anytime, and this years North East conference is going to be held in beautiful Toronto, Ontario, Canada on May 17 – 20.
We are looking to raise $3000; $1000 to cover travel expenses for our group, and the rest to cover staff time and lost income for the days we may be closed to attend the conference. The closer we get to our goal, the more staff and volunteers we can afford to let go!
You here this all the time… “Just $5 dollars makes a difference…” but it’s true! Any amount you can give brings us closer to our goal. Thanks so much for reading, and we’ll see you at the co-op!
