Stripping Party

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011
On Tuesday, August 30th help us to clean out our shed and have some fun at the same time.

Stripping consists of taking parts off of old bicycles, salvaging the good, and recycling the things we can no longer use.

Food will be provided, but bring your own beverages. For a few lucky winners there will be some nifty prizes!

The stripping party will run from 4pm until 9pm. Feel free to stay for the entire time, or just come when you can!

 


 

Women’s Night in August!

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

We are working towards making our space more inviting for women wishing to learn more about bicycles.

Wednesday the 31st of August from 6pm to 9pm is Women’s Night at the Bike Kitchen once again! The space is for self identified women and is trans inclusive.

The evening will consist of shop time to work on your own bicycle with instruction and tutorials when you need them. Beginners are very encouraged to attend. Knowledgeable mechanics and volunteers will be able to answer your bike questions and help you get your ride in tip top shape.

We aim to provide a relaxed evening of fun and wrenching.

Bring: Your bad self and your bicycle – if you have one. If you don’t have one, feel free to come and pair up to help someone else fix their bike.

Cost: $5-$10 Sliding Scale. No one is turned away for lack of funds.

RSVP to our facebook event.

Inquire at ubc.bikecoop@gmail.com with your comments or concerns.

Hope to See You There!

A Message for the Men: sorry about the invite. There is no way to only invite women from our co-op group. If you want to support the event you can encourage your lady friends to come!
