Winter is approaching quickly but that doesn’t mean your community B!KE shop is closing! In fact, we’re going to be ramping up our workshop schedule in the coming months starting with a special EarnABike programme for Trent students. Orientation will be held at 12PM on Sunday, October 18 at our B!KE downtown location (336 Rubidge St).
EarnABike is a flexible learn-and-earn system for community members to give a little love back to their community, on their own schedule, and to build a bike for themselves in the process. By volunteering time in the shop, participants can earn points towards a bike of their choosing from our stock of donated frames. Then, the skills they learn and practice in the shop can be used to refurbish their bike. All of this is at no cost to participants!
B!KE is a student levy group and non-profit teaching shop that works with Trent and the community of Peterborough to get people from all walks of life riding bikes safely and with confidence. If you’ve got a desire to learn a bit more about the mechanics and maintenance of the pedal-powered vehicle that changed the world, come visit our friendly teaching staff and check out our huge library of tools. We’ve even got a little teaching shop on campus! For hours and more information:
