Bike Pirates Needs Your Help

CYC Program
We are in the process of starting the Bicycle Program at the Cabbagetown Youth Center. This is a collective undertaking between Pirates and other organizations in the Toronto cycling community. We are sorting bikes this week, and having meetings the next two weeks, with hopes of the program beginning the first week of July. Volunteers will be needed to help run the program, including organizing and hands-on teaching. Please contact me if you would like to be involved: needleandthread@gmail.com

Bike!Bike!
As of yet we do not have enough volunteers to help us fulfill the organizational tasks of Bike!Bike! The conference is coming up in less than 3 months! We needs folks to help wtih coordinating AND we also need members of the community to get involved by donating resources or money, as well as billeting and bike-lending for the folks attending the conference.

If you want to help out with organizing please write to: bikebike2010@gmail.com

Bike Building
Our once-a-month bike-building nights have been going really well! I want to suggest the date for June’s bike build for Friday May 4th. If this doens’t work for most people we can reschedule. We’ve been able to build up about 12 bikes on these nights (and get some others half-way done), so it’s a good way to get some recycled, affordable bikes out to the community. Also, we love building bikes!
The build will go from 7pm until 4am or until we are toast.
If you would like to participate – keeping in mind that this is a fast-paced, results-driven evening – please contact me: needleandthread@gmail.com
there will be pizza and beer!
