Plan October Bike Building Bee


Hello good people,

Planning is just beginning for a
Bike Building Event
in October. (Date proposed Oct 20, 21, 22.)

The vision so far includes chopper building, regular bike building, and
other bike-related workshops. Also featuring a party (at Simon's place) and
rumours of food provided for the weekend. Probable location PedalPlay and
Depot spaces, plus Simon's place. Satellite workshops also possible if
someone(s) wants to make it happen.

NEXT MEETING is for other people who want to come to create a RAD weekend
event where we work, learn, inspire, come together as different biking
organizations, and hep this community GROW and be healthy.

We are meeting on Thursday night Aug 24th at 7pm at Jane and RusL's place
E 45th (at Main St) phone 604>>>324===1983 for directions
PotLuck if you can.

Aug 24 meeting is for people who are interested in producing this event in
some form or another, this also means helping to define the event.

So far, emphasis is on:

-bikes (freaky, regular, mini, whatever... ifny has a bunch of bikes to
-peer education... lots of people with knowledge to share, people who want
to learn
-community created event
-accessible, for people who cannot afford it and for those who can
-safe, inclusive, tolerant, welcoming to all. [especially welcoming those
who don't already feel empowered or have easy access to fix their own bikes
yet, this is what peer sharing and education is for!]

We have had one discussion already about this event, where the following
people were totally into it:
Jane, RusL, Ifny, Simon Little, Robert Waltz, RedSara, Pete Lypkie. There
are a few other folks who are also excited, including the rumoured Bike
Collective, although rumours are naturally inconclusive. Most people have
never heard of this and that is because we just thought it up! NEW NEW NEW.

Contact someone of us if you want to talk more about this project. Talking
is great. Not everything happens in meetings. Plan a workshop. Think what
you have to contribute. Share your skills: be they mechanical,
construction, artistic, social, culinary, musical, diplomatic...[think of
more?]... Be crazy with us. Bike love might transformer the world. When we
get it together.

More details as this progresses will be posted to the Vancouver CM blog
