Wednesday the 23rd, we’ll be sorting and recycling at the new shop–1802 E Sprague. Come and join us. John and Ryan will be breaking into boxes, paring down the tires, and setting up the retail area. They’d love the company. 11-2. Thanks!

Our request for web help was promptly answered, and we’re lucky to be receiving help from TWO web gurus.

Thanks a million guys!!! John is no longer a grumpy troll.

John is going batty dealing with website updates. P2P has a fairly
static site, but even trivial amounts of HTMLing make John a grumpy
troll. I think John’s best holiday gift would be a web developer who
could maintain our site and make small improvements. It’s all basic
HTML stuff and a pinch of ASP to integrate the blog, but otherwise,
it’s a pretty low-key site for a web developer. If you’ve got the
skills and you can donate a few hours a month please contact us at: pedals2people@gmail.com. ”

What an amazing day. We had 17 volunteers to help us move everything, absolutely every last part and piece, to the new shop. And we were fast! You know what they say: many hands make light work. WOW. This was a big day for P2P.

A huge thanks to Justin, Ryan, John, John Henry, Nate, JP, Pat, Wes, Beth, Mike,Ben,Taylor, Joe, Travis, Drew, Bill and Jeff J.

Here are the pics from today’s move.

If you have some old t-shirts clogging up your drawers, please donate them to P2P. We will cut them up and use them as shop rags in our new shop. Just bag them and drop them off at 453 W 26th.

Also, keep checking the P2P calendar for upcoming volunteer events, like this Friday (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

A week from today, we’re moving the big stuff into our new shop. Please let
me know if you can join in the fun so we can figure out a plan. The
idea will be to have a crew up at the garage loading trucks and a crew
at the new space unloading.If you have a truck or want to help by hauling stuff in your cargo trailer, drop me a line at pedals2people@gmail.com

See pictures here Thanks to Tiffany, John Henry and Jacque for volunteering today!

More painting tomorrow…

Our friend Jacque from Fresh Abundance scored the west wall and started chipping away at the plaster today–looks good! John and I will help Friday (12/4) from 10 am – 1 pm. If anyone needs to fulfill their good deed for the month, we can certainly use your help.

Bring a hammer, pry bar, wear work clothes, and bring a bandana to wear around your nose. Safety glasses wouldn’t be a bad idea either. They’ll look nice in the group photo too :,,)

As most of you know, Pedals2People is moving. Our new space is
next to One World Restaurant on Sprague (1802 E. Sprague). Most of the
big build-out is done. Next we need to paint, put together shelving,
then move in. So we’ll be busy during the month of December.
Our first order of business is to paint a couple walls in the P2P space. That’ll happen this coming Saturday (12/5) from 9am to Noon at 1802. E Sprague. We’ll have lots of paint.
If you want to help, please bring a brush or a roller/pan, and show up ready to paint. With a dozen or so people, we should be able to knock out a couple coats and be done by noon. Our goal is to build a
community shop, so we’re really counting on the community to help us out!
