We are honored to be a go-to organization for bicycle education and advocacy requests. We receive hundreds of requests per year to get involved or lend a helping hand at community events of all kinds. We value each and every request, but it’s impossible for us to say yes to everything. Because of this, we choose collaborations that directly align with our mission.
While there are certainly exceptions, we rarely “table” at events. We believe the best relationships are interactive, and tabling (where you’re literally on one side of the table and we’re on the other) isn’t a truly interactive experience. We prefer events where we are speaking, educating, or engaging.
There are times that we’d like to say yes to something but can’t simply because it coincides with our hours of operation or Volunteer/Member Nights. It’s challenging for us to schedule events outside the shop during our operating hours, because running our programming and running our DIY shop for members and walk-ins is a full time job for our staff.
All this said, there are plenty of things we’d love to say yes to. We love being asked to lead brown bag lunch and learn sessions, or to come to your organization to talk about who we are and what we do. When considering requesting our presence at your event, please give us as much lead time as possible (30 days or even more). As we are lending our time and resources to your event, we recommend a donation to BBP of between $50 to $100.
