As part of a national "day of service" on Monday, January 20th, Martin Luther King day, you can do your part to promote bicycle safety education by helping the Ohio City Bicycle Co-op get ready for spring -- building shelves, sorting bike parts, oiling chains and pumping tires. Mechanical ability is helpful, but not required: you can learn while you serve!

Besides honoring Dr. King's memory and helping to equip the co-op's bicycle safety education programs, your sweat equity will earn volunteer credit toward lessons, shop-use membership, and refurbished bikes.

At least one hour of service is requested, anytime between noon and 4pm. Orientation and training sessions will be held at Noon and 2PM. Work clothes are recommended. Gloves, all tools and supplies, and light snacks are provided.
