Hello glorious biking folks!
The Davis Bike Collective is running a full-on volunteer training series
starting TODAY!!! These trainings will cover all aspects of basic bike
repair, bike collective philosophy, and lots of other fun activities! If
you cannot make today, but want to participate in the rest, just email Max
Stevenson, our fantastic organizer, at maxstevenson2...@yahoo.com. A full
schedule is below and at:
The Bike Collective needs your help! The Bike Collective is dedicated to
serving bicyclists in Davis, and runs on donations of both time and money.
To become a trusted volunteer the Davis Bike Collective is offering a
5-week training class this Spring Quarter, 2012. We are looking for
volunteers to show up for a regular shift, and maybe that means you! After
5 more weeks of helping to run a shift, you will be on the list for
consideration to get a key and run a shift on your own.
This training class is for people who will be spending the summer in Davis.
Class size is limited. After graduation, a trip or special event will be
held for participants.
