Bike Mechanics (CCC)

Posted by on October 19th, 2007 at 11:50 am

Calling all Bike Mechanics –

The Community Cycling Center is holding the annual Holiday Bike Drive, a great holiday tradition that provides refurbished bikes, helmets and safety education for 500 low-income children. We have so many bikes to complete and we need the help of the entire bike community to help us reach our goal.

The CCC will be hosting many Wrench Parties between now and our event. We have hundreds of bikes to complete, so we are inviting all volunteers to come into our shop and make these bikes safe and functional for these great kids. If you are highly skilled or would like to practice your mechanic work with a shop-full of tools, this is a great opportunity for you.

If you can only come for one of the nights, that’s ok!
