Tomorrow is the big day. For all of you planning to attend our 1st anniversary bbq this Saturday (noon to 2 p.m.), please bring your lawn chair. The weather forecast is calling for 6 hours of sunshine but also some rain. We’re hoping to sit outside on the lawn behind CT, but if it rains, we’ll move inside into the larger main area of the building. See you all there!
It’s been a fabulously successful first year of operation for Cycle Transitions and what better way to celebrate than with a BBQ. Come on out, see how far we’ve come and partake in the BBQ. Yummy Yummy! It’s a great opportunity to take a look in the shop, see what’s happening, renew your membership, or just socialize with other cyclists.
Date: Saturday October 5th, 2013
Location: Cycle Transitions
Hope you can make it!
If any of you in the Cycle Transitions community has a PC that you would be interested in donating, Cycle Transitions would be most appreciative. If you think you might be able to help out, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
With the changing season, also comes a change in Cycle Transitions hours. As of this week, we’re switching to “off-season” hours at CT. We’ll be open to the public and members on Tuesday evening and Saturday mornings only. Thursday evenings are reserved for mechanics to start working on our stockpile of bicycles.
The Cobourg Police Service has generously agreed to donate unclaimed bicycles from their storage to Cycle Transitions provided we make as many of them as possible to folks-in-need. We are looking for volunteers to help with the collection and transportation of these bicycles. Those with a truck, a van, or trailer are especially encouraged to lend a hand.
Date: Tuesday September 24th
Time: 3:30 p.m.
Meeting Place: Cobourg Police Station
Please let us know if you can help out. Either email at email@example.com or use the commenting feature to let us know you are in!
There is no formal
presentation but Tuesday evening has been set aside for women only. You can drop by, work on your bike, practice some skills either on your own bike or a Cycle Transitions bike, and talk shop with the other women there. Basic maintenance will go a long way toward protecting the investment you’ve made in your bicycle. Learn how to clean your bike, clean and lubricate your chain, or change a tire. You never know when it will come in handy.
Date: Tuesday, September 17th
Location: Cycle Transitions, 739 D’Arcy St., Cobourg
Time: 6:30-9:00 pm
Cost: free for Cycle Transition members, $5 per hour for non-members
Memberships to Cycle Transitions: $30 single or $50 family membership for 1 year which gives you access to our do-it-yourself work space and tools during our hours of operation and workshops.
Cycle Transitions was out at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival this past August where they delivered a Basic Bicycle Maintenance Workshop at the Sustainable Living Village on Friday evening. The Shelter Valley Folk Festival celebrates music, juried art, wellness, sustainable living and harvest food in the heart of Northumberland County through an annual Labour Day Weekend festival.
We’re looking for cyclists interested in becoming instructors for our various Can Bike courses and for school clinics. There will be opportunities to work with cyclists of all ages and abilities. You’ll be doing significant work in helping increase the level of safe cycling in our community. We have funding to cover the costs for your certification which includes Can Bike and First Aid training. If you’re interested, please contact Paul Mills or Rick Nonnekes. We’ll start the discussion of when to schedule the training once we have our group confirmed.
Please Note: The shop will be closed this Saturday June 29th for the Canada Day Long Weekend. The shop will close the Saturday of all holiday weekends. Have a safe and happy holiday everyone!
