Fresh off a visit from our partner in Sierra Leone, Karim, aka Stylish, we are in full swing at Working Bikes! We’ve got one community ride and massive donation under our belt, a new partnership with READI that’s bringing a ton of energy to the shop through the week, new regular instruction sessions in Brandon’s, and a ton of volunteer wrenches and container packers that are getting bikes out to the folks who need them. We’ll gather to talk about it all and plan more for the future, both in person and virtually, next Wednesday, June 6th, for a hybrid meeting. All are cordially invited to attend in person anytime after 6:00pm. Bring a dish or some drinks to share if you like, and though we’ve lifted our mask and vaccine mandate policy, we still want to keep our community healthy — please hang back if you’re feeling at all ill. We’ll be starting the meeting and activating the Zoom link (see below) promptly at 6:30pm. We’ll be joined by our partner Dave Simmons, head of Ride Illinois, to talk about their work and a project we’re partnering on, and just in case you didn’t get the chance to interact with Stylish when he was in town, we’ll have him remote, from DC (only 1 time zone away) to talk about all that he accomplishes in Sierra Leone AND reflect on his recent visit to Chicago. We look forward to seeing you there!
