First things first… in case you haven’t heard of BikeSauce yet – here’s a quick intro:
BikeSauce is a new DIY bike shop in the east end of Toronto
This will be a place where you can fix your bicycle using our tools and recycled or new parts. If you dont know how to fix it, our volunteers will be there to help you. It will also be a social space where you can come and meet with your neighbours and figure out how to improve our city.
That’s right… you’ve probably heard of the BikePirates… well now that DIY spirit is coming to Toronto’s East End (they are looking for locations in Leslieville), and they are looking for old bike donations:
Give us your Poor, your Rusty, your Jumbled Mass of Old Bicycles
We’ll breathe new life into them. We are BikeSauce, a volunteer-run, registered non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cycling in Toronto. We have three goals:
1. To refurbish old bikes, and to help people repair their own.
2. To link more people to cycling.
3. To advocate for cycling issues.
Your donated bicycles and bike parts will be used to put more bikes back on the road, and to help people develop bike repair skills. Check us out at http://bikesauce.org.
Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 647 724 7880. If you call before 3 p.m., you may have to leave a message, please do so! We’ll get back to you the same day.
You can also make a huge difference in helping us set up shop.
Please come to the volunteer meeting on March 3, 7p.m. location To be announced on our website, bikesauce.org
