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!
Help us as we load the 17th and final container of 2019! We will be prepping and loading adult and kids’ bikes for our friends at the Mfuwe bike shop in Zambia. Join us on Friday, December 19th and Saturday, December 20th between 12pm-4pm. We look forward to seeing you!
The 16th shipping party of 2019 is scheduled this week! Stop by the warehouse Wednesday, December 4th and Thursday, December 5th between 12pm-4pm as we load a container for a Village Bicycle Project shop in Lunsar, Sierra Leone. The project in Lunsar also has a racing team associated with it, so we’ll also be sending them kits, trainers, and jerseys.
It’s getting chilly out there but that won’t stop us! The next shipping party will be to our friends at CESTA in El Salvador. CESTA is the only one of our international partners that accepts full-suspension mountain bikes, so we’ll be clearing out our reserves in the basement. Come lend a hand Friday and Saturday from 12pm-4pm!
