Yes it's a mass email. Apologies, sort of.
So here's the deal, If I never see you anymore it's because I'm spending a silly amount of time this summer helping organize Bike!Bike! 2017. Bike!Bike! is an international gathering of folks committed to using bicycles as a vehicle for social change which will happening be here in Winnipeg from Aug 24-27
. We'll be hosting 200-300 bike nerds & geeks from all over the continent and I'm gonna need a lil help from y'all;
1.Hosting conference attendees
; Got a floor? Couch? Spare bed? Even a patch of grass would be great! Conference attendees get billeted out with local hosts and we need hosts to sign up online.
There's a short survey that's part of the Bike!Bike! registration
about how much space you have, location, pets, loaner bikes, etc. If you're able and willing to host even one person please sign up asap! Just register for the conference as a host rather than a participant. It only takes 3 minutes!
!: Bike!Bike! isn't just about bike nerdery but moreso about social justice and how we're trying to make the world a more equitable, sustainable, radical place using bikes and bike-based education. If you think you have any sort of knowledge or skills that would be useful to share with a bunch of other rad, eager-to-learn peoples then please register to attend and put together a workshop. Registration fees are pay-what-you-can (suggested $50-$100) with 2 meals a day and free entry to a bunch of great parties. Please inquire with me if you're not sure whether your workshop would be a good fit or not. Register or submit a workshop here
- We're looking for volunteers to help out of course. Most volunteers will be needed in the week or two leading up to the conference and tasks are many and varied. We also may need some loaner bikes for attendees to borrow. If you're able to volunteer or loan a bike there's a quick volunteer survey here that you can fill out; https://goo.gl/forms/gt0MPFASygvRXoFg1
4. Pass this info on to other folks who might be interested in attending!
