Hello one and all!
We’re officially in the month of September, and what a month we have planned! Celebrate the end of summer by coming down to check out one, or all, of SJBC’s many events!
Thursday, September 19th:
September Clinic Skill Share: From 7pm to 9pm at the San Pedro Square Market.
Get your wheels ready for San Jose Bike Party! (80’s Night! 9/20: http://www.sjbikeparty.org/ )
Come join us at the San Pedro Square Market on Thursday, September 19th, to chill with fellow cyclists, and learn bike maintenance tips from San José Bike Clinic’s volunteer mechanics.
Chain popping off? Brakes not functioning correctly? Got a flat? We’ll have you up and running in time for San Jose Bike Party the following night!
Click here to RSVP to the Facebook event and invite your friends! We also need 3 mechanics and 2 people for the outreach and signup table. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability and how you’d like to help.
This event is open to all ages. Bring your family and friends! In exchange for repair services provided, we ask that those who make use of our services consider making a small donation to the clinic. No one will be turned away for lack of funds!
Have a specific maintenance skill in mind you’d like the mechanics to teach at the Skill Share? Let us know in the comments!
Thank you to San Pedro Square Market for hosting! Please come early and enjoy the shops and restaurants. http://www.sanpedrosquaremarket.com/
Friday, September 20th:
PARK(ing) Day: From 11am to 6pm in front of Billy Berk’s/Mezcal on San Fernando Street.
SJBC will be teaming up with Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) to take part in San Jose’s Annual PARK(ing) Day event!
What is PARK(ing) Day?
PARK(ing) Day is an annual day-long global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in an area of San Francisco that is underserved by public open space.
RSVP and share SJBC’s Facebook event to tell your friends about our clinic, or point them to the PARK(ing) Day San Jose Facebook page. We also need 2 outreach volunteers, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Mechanic skills encouraged, but not required. Interested? Email email@example.com with your availability and how you’d like to help.
SVBC will be providing FREE bike valet for those attending, as the volunteers of SJBC will be teaching basic bike maintenance and repair skills in the same station. Swing on by anytime from 11am to 6pm!
San Jose’s PARK(ing) Day is being organized and structured by GreenBelt Alliance. Learn more about PARK(ing) Day and Greenbelt at their website: http://www.greenbelt.org/
Friday, September 27th:
San Jose Bike Clinic Pop-Up Clinic at the San Jose Downtown Farmer’s Market: From 10am to 2pm at the San Pedro Square Market.
SJBC will once again be making our presence known at the weekly San Pedro Square Farmer’s Market! Bike on down and enjoy the bounty of our local organic farmers spanning from Hollister all the way up to Half Moon Bay. And while you’re picking up your weekly produce, why not stop by the SJBC booth for a quick maintenance lesson? We’ll be setup from 10am to 2pm. Come say hi!
Click here to RSVP and invite your friends to the Facebook event! We also need 2 volunteers to do outreach, preferably one with mechanic skills. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability and how you’d like to help.
