Worcester Earn-a-Bike would very much love to acquire any paint and painting supplies that you no longer need! We’re going to be painting our new shop space in the next week or so and it would be THE BEST if we didn’t have to spend a bunch of $$$ on paint/primer/brushes/rollers. We’d rather spend money on things like new tools for y’all to use! Email email@example.com if you’re able to make a donation or if you’d like to help us paint! Thanks!
It’s true! In the next couple of weeks, we’ll start the process of moving back to our Stone Soup home at 4 King Street! Because of the holiday season and to prepare for the move, Worcester Earn-a-Bike will be taking a work-cation starting after our shop hours on Saturday, December 14th. We hope to reopen in February. Hurry in to do those repairs to your winter ride that perhaps you’ve been putting off. There’s not much time left! Be sure to keep checking the website for volunteer opportunities related to the move! Though our facebook page is usually a little bit better for updates.
Thanks for another great year at Worcester Earn-a-Bike! We can’t wait to get our hands dirty with you in our newly renovated home in 2014!
Worcester Earn-a-Bike is moving out of our current warehouse space and we need your help to make it happen!
Sunday, October 6th, 11:00am-5:30pm
Wednesday, October 9th, 12:00pm-6:00pm
Tasks will include lots of sorting through bikes and salvaging nice things. Maybe you’ll find the bike of your dreams whilst moving some ancient frames around! How convenient that you’ll also be earning hours to make that glorious two wheeled machine yours! No experience with bicycle mechanics is needed.
Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!
We’ll provide the pizza!
Meet at the shop at 34 Cambridge Street at the workday start times so we can mosey on over to the warehouse together. If you can’t make it on time, please email Matt@worcesterearnabike.or
There’s a Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/684676201544510/ Please invite your friends!
Thanks for all your support!
The hours of Women and Trans Night at Earn-a-Bike are now 6:30pm-8:30pm. Tell your friends!
Woman and Trans Night:
Women and Trans Night operates just like our other shop hours, but it is a space reserved solely for non-male identifying folks. We welcome people with all levels of experience with bicycle mechanics and encourage those who have knowledge to share what they know. We strive to make Women and Trans night as safe a space as possible for learning, socializing, and empowering ourselves and each other.
Email Amanda at amanda[at]kiddschall.com if you have any questions or want more info!
Worcester Earn-a-Bike is hosting Bike! Bike! Northeast September 6th-8th.
Bike! Bike! is an annual gathering organized by and for community bike projects like Worcester Earn-a-Bike. We have the honor of hosting this year’s regional gathering of groups from the northeast corner of the United States and bordering parts of Canada. It’ll be an exciting weekend of bike rides and workshops. Most will be held right near the Worcester Earn-a-Bike shop.
Please consider registering for the event so we can figure out how many people to expect for workshops and meals. Registering also ensures that you’ll know about the locations of workshops and nightly events. There is a $20-50 suggested donation for the weekend, but we won’t turn anyone away. We hope to see you for part or ALL!! of the conference! Oh and if you can host any out of town folks, that’s awesome! Please contact Amanda at Amanda@kiddschall.com. Thanks!
