Volunteers - Monday night is mechanics night. Working to get bikes ready for the public. Wednesday night is Open To The Public Night. When you get to the shop on Wednesdays to open it - please stage bikes that are ready to sell outside on patio (if not raining) or in the community room (if raining). Also put bike shop open sign in doorway so it can be seen from the street. Then work on additional bikes still not ready for sale - unless customers of any kind show up - they always take priority - especially the kids. $25 an adult bike, $15 a kids bike. Kids can also trade in a bike - one a year. Kids can also volunteer to earn a bike (4 hours - two bike shops essentially). Adults cannot volunteer to earn a bike, unless pre-approved by management. (We had a huge problem with this population stealing equipment/tools last year. If an adult wants a bike - they almost always will need to pay $25 for one.)
The SBC Cycling Community Bike Shop at the Fairbanks is intended to help kids with basic repair and biking skills, and adults with transportation issues. We need folks with some basic bike knowledge and some who just want to learn on the job! As stated, the shop will be open to the public on Wednesdays (6-8 pm) from April through September. Monday nights will be mechanics night, dedicated to just getting bikes ready for sale (not open to the public).
