Volunteer with BBP!
Our friends over at Primary Health are putting on a One-Day Bike Drive this Saturday the 30th, with all the donated bikes destined for BBP. If you can't get to BBP to donate your bike, you can drop it off at any Primary Health urgent care from 10am-2pm!
We’re looking for several volunteers with trucks and/or trailers to help us go around and do bike pick-ups at the various drop-off points. The drive will run from 10am-2pm so we’re asking our volunteers to arrive at the clinics right as it is ending to begin loading up the bikes. Click here for more information and a list of all the the participating clinics. Email our Volunteer Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions or concerns as to how you can lend a hand.
If you haven’t got a truck or trailer but are still looking to get involved this week, pop in for one of our Volunteer Nights: Tues. and Thurs. 6-8pm. The Christmas Give-Away is steadily approaching and we need your help to get a head start on fixin’ up little bikes to insure that we get a bike to every kid that needs one!

Fall is here and colder, wetter weather is on its way. Riding your bike through adverse conditions can be fun and invigorating, but it can take its toll on your bike. If you’re planning on riding through the winter, getting a lower-cost utilitarian bike to bear the brunt of winter’s worst weather can be a great way to get out and enjoy all-season riding.
Luckily, the BBP is fully stocked with retro mountain bikes and stable commuters that can make a trip to work possible in (almost) any weather. Come check out our $200-$300 Trek, Specialized, Giant, and other great bikes that can be bar-mitted, fendered, and studded for safe, stable, and comfortable riding throughout the colder months.

Sew your own Bike Bags | September 29th, 630PM-800PM
Learn how to sew your own bike bags and increase your carrying capacity affordably. The right bags can make commuting more convenient and extended bike tours possible. Making your own bags can save you money and you can design your bags specifically for your bike and needs.
Join BBP mechanic and former outdoor gear designer and entrepreneur, Rich Gardunia, in this demo class. Rich will be walking us through the steps of sewing a custom-fit frame bag for your bike. With the right fabric, velcro, and know-how you can convert almost any space on your bicycle into a veritable stowage option.
