    Starts: 6:00 pm
    Ends: Tuesday, September 1, 2015 - 8:00 pm
    Description: Want to help out at BikeWorks? Attend this orientation and learn how you can lend a hand.

    http://edmontonbikes.ca/event-registration/

    It takes a small army of volunteers to keep BikeWorks running every day and we welcome anybody who would like to join our community. Learn how you can lend a hand by attending a Volunteer Orientation! You'll find out how you can help keep the shop running smoothly, learn a little bit of the history and philosophy of EBC, and get connected with other volunteers.

    BikeWorks volunteers receive benefits including after-hours access, volunteer pricing, free private courses, social events, and of course the opportunity to learn mechanic skills while helping people to fix their bikes.

    Existing mechanical experience is always welcome, but not necessary. There are opportunities for non-mechanical volunteers, as well as opportunities to develop new skills.

    How do you build the longest bicycle greenway in the world?

    You can ask Jean François Pronovost, one of the architects (figuratively speaking--he was originally trained as a biologist) of Quebec's 5000km La Route Verte at next month's Alberta Bicycle Commuters Conference.

    The conference takes place September 26-27, 2015 at the Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre. More information, including registration and accommodations, can be found on the conference website.

    Yards-bannerlogo-01

    From The Yards, Edmonton's quarterly magazine about downtown Edmonton’s transformation and growth, comes an in-depth conversation on Edmonton's bike lanes and road culture:

    Recorded just weeks before City Council voted to scrape off the largest on-road bike route in Edmonton, a writer and former bike courier discusses the progress and set backs of building decent bike infrastructure in Edmonton. Is there enough political will to deliver on this key element of the city's active transportation strategy?

    Are you headed to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival this weekend?

    There will be no on-site parking in the Cloverdale community, and private vehicles are not permitted to enter the Cloverdale community for passenger drop-off and pick-up. ETS is providing a shuttle service if you wish to park & ride.

    However, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival also provides secure, supervised bike parking. EBC is pleased to be providing free air and minor adjustments for your bike as well. We'll also be selling bike lights for $2.50. You will find our volunteer mechanics at the festival bike lock-up during these times:

    • Thursday, Aug 6. 4-6pm and 10-11pm
    • Friday, Aug 7. 8-9pm and 11pm-1am
    • Saturday, Aug 8. 2-3pm, 6-7:30pm, and 11:30-1:00am
    • Sunday, Aug 9. 2-3pm, 6-7:30pm, and 10:30pm-12:00am

    See you at the festival!
