August General Meeting

Join us Wednesday, August 4th for the last general meeting of the summer! Working Bikes will be hosting a hybrid meeting, with the opportunity for attendants to join us via Zoom (link below) and in person (fully vaccinated individuals only).

Taylor Jones of Bikes for the World (our friend and close partner in the used-bikes-as-tools-of-empowerment-abroad world) will be providing an update on their work. We’ll also be hearing from folks at Beaubien Woods Forest Preserve to learn how bikes fixed by WB volunteers are being put to use. Upcoming group ride announcements and early planning details for the 22nd Anniversary Party will also be discussed so do not miss out! Check out our minutes from the June General Meeting, as well as the upcoming agenda below.

June General Meeting

The June General Meeting is coming up next week! In addition to hosting the meeting on Zoom (link below), we’ll also be welcoming folks back into the Working Bikes warehouse for a hybrid meeting set-up.

Only fully vaccinated (2 weeks post 2nd shot) folks will be allowed to attend in person the evening of Wednesday, June 2nd. The option of virtual attendance via Zoom meeting will continue for anyone interested. Vaccinated attendees will not need to wear masks while at the meeting, and we’ll be back at our old potluck ways.

This meeting should be as action packed and exciting as the past few, with a guest presentation from Pha’tal and Lyana of Think Outside Da Block about their work in Englewood (and if you don’t get enough Pha’tal at the WB meeting, you can catch him on June 3rd talking about building bike culture). And our very own Steve Irwin, Doctor of Tubes and Keeper of Books, fresh off a trip to kindred-spirit-org Bicitekas in Mexico City will share some about his experience.

We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday at 7:15pm!

“We We Cycle” Virtual Film Screening

Just because we’ve had a snowy April doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day! All throughout the week of April 20th, folks can virtually attend the One Earth Film Festival. Working Bikes will be tuning in for the screening of “Why We Cycle,” a film about Dutch cycling culture at the personal and city-planning level. Following the Friday evening film, Working Bikes and other attendees will participate in a brief Zoom discussion. 

RSVP for the screening and the post-film discussion here! We’re looking forward to (virtually) seeing you!
