To those of you that donated to our go fund me, or donated through paypal to send me, THANK YOU! Much was learned on this trip to Toronto, and many of my take aways will help inform our strategic planning sessions for 2020-2025.

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 was held in beautiful Toronto, Ontario, Canada on May 17 – 20.

Much of what I learned this year had to do with how CBOs interact in different areas of education, both as a service and an educational program/tool. I am hoping some of the things I learned will help to inform our future directions. Thanks again if you donated!

If you’d like to get more involved in those new directions, consider becoming a volunteer , joing our advisory committee, or donate!
