Hi BIKE TOWN!
It was great to get some new faces at this past BIKE TOWN meeting, and for those who couldn’t make it, here’s a brief recap:
BIKE MAINTENANCE WORKSHOPS
December 5th / 6:15pm / ID gallery
Jessica Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) is heading up the organization of the first workshop. We hope to have tools in time, but if not, Will Krause has volunteered to bring some of his.
For now, it looks like the ID building might be the best place to meet and have workshops. Brendan Ravenhill (email@example.com) is working on scouting a more permanent location.
Mideum Shin (firstname.lastname@example.org) is heading up the organization of safety info for bikers, if you have any resources to send him, please do!
Sara Kudra and I (email@example.com
) are working on getting more racks at RISD asap. But if anyone is interested in a more long-term fabrication project, please get in touch!
We are looking into working with Recycle-A-Bike to get some training on bike workshops and maintenance. They’re having volunteer night tomorrow at 6-9 at the Steel Yard, anyone want to go learn some bike repair?
After the workshop December 5th, we’re going to have a little shin-dig to celebrate the end of the semester, shall we say 7:15 or so?
Critical Mass Providence is happening again the day after Thanksgiving, that’s Friday November 28th. Check myspace.com/bikeprov for more details.
Nate Phipps (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Maddie Mcgarrity are working on forming an official RISD team (that way we can get insurance and vans to go on trips).
Last week the Providence Bicycle Coalition asked if there were any RISD students interested in working on a Public Service Announcement about bike safety. It could be a really cool opportunity for FAV or really any of us creative types to collaborate on a project and see it produced and on TV. If you’re interested, email me at email@example.com.
Nate Phipps and Maddie Mcgarrity are working on bringing community bikes to RISD’s campus. If you interested in getting involved with this project contact Nate at firstname.lastname@example.org
OFFICIAL CLUB STATUS
We’re working on being an official club through OSL for spring. In the meantime, we’re getting help from Respond Design.
