Volunteers - when you get to shop 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 take priority. $25 an adult bike, $15 a kids bike - or 3 hours of donated time at bike shop also will earn the customer a bike. Kids can also trade in a bike - one a year.
The SBC Cycling Bike Repair and Rental 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! The shop will be open on Wednesdays (6-8 pm) and Saturdays (Noon-2 pm) from April through September. To start with work will include getting the bike shop up and running and organized, and then we'll just be dealing with helping kids with their bikes, teaching them bike riding rules, helping with proper helmet fit/placements, etc. At this point, not only do we need volunteers to staff the shop when it's open, but we also need bikes, bike parts, bike tools and cleaning/servicing equipment donated for the shop. Alternatively, you can donate cash towards the shop too and we'll go find what we need :)
FYI folks - A+B Bike store is putting on a training class for volunteers on bike repair and maintenance on Thursday March 30, 2017 from 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Thanks A+B!!!!!! https://www.facebook.com/events/183608578791732/
