Did you know … ?
For every event that we put on, we enlist an Event Lead. Event Leads are responsible for making sure that our table is set up and we have the tools that might be needed to repair bikes.

Halloween Skill Share!

San Jose Bike Clinic’s next Skill Share is Thursday 10/17 from 7-9 pm at San Pedro Square Market, just before Halloween. Invite your friends to the Facebook event:

Bicycle Jack-o-lanternBike Clinic’s Skill Share will get you ready for San Jose Bike Party’s Dia de los Muertos ride on 10/18 and for a safe Halloween. A bike is a fun, convenient and safe way to get around on Halloween and if you’re going to Halloween parties. Come get your bike tuned up for the festivities. Even better, if your bike is a part of your Halloween costume, come work on your creation or show it off!

If you’d like to volunteer, we need a couple more mechanics with basic bike repair skills like adjusting derailleurs and brakes, plus another outreach volunteer to staff the table, sign people up for repairs, talk about SJBC and biking. Come share your skills and help people learn to fix bikes! The commitment would be from 6:45 to 9:15, to help us set up and pack up. Email if you’d like to help.
