Some notes from our 2009 Annual Meeting:

  • We’re proud to have serviced nearly 200 bikes at our free tune-up events this summer
  • We were able to do 3 of those tune-up events completely by bicycle–thanks to New Belgium Brewery and their grant, and an in-kind donation from Burley, makers of the cargo trailers we purchased
  • We’re happy to have the support of individual donors and local businesses who provide much needed financial backing for our programs, purchase of tools, supplies, insurance, and regular maintenance
  • This fall marks the start of a partnership with SCC and our first work-study employee
  • New programs are in the works: ladies and other mechanics classes, thanks to the support of local professional bike mechanics
  • And our move to a more central location on east Sprague is forthcoming!

This winter P2P will be offering a Ladies Wrenching Class. Each class will cover a major bike component, include instruction, practice, and will be taught by local pro bike mechanic, John Gaz. John has over 20 years of experience in bike mechanics, knows how teach so people can learn, and his sense of humor and love of bikes are evident . Ladies, you don’t want to miss this opportunity!

Check back often to see more details about dates, prices, and location.

Our annual meeting will be held on Sunday, October 25th at 4pm. The location is 453 W 26th Ave. Everyone is invited. Please send an email to pedals2people@gmail.com to let us know you plan on coming. We need to how much hot food to prepare and how many cold drinks to buy!

See you then!
