1:30pm – 2:30pm
Been thinking about volunteering? Here’s your chance to learn everything you need to know! We’ll cover the basic Shop Coordinator duties, what’s involved in being a volunteer Mechanic, and the types of tasks we tackle Tuesdays during Co-op night.
Volunteer hours can be used toward the cost of adopting a bike, used parts, and to pay your annual membership dues. It’s a great deal!
The volunteers of MoBo would like to extend a warm thank you to all the presenters who took time out to provide an awesome series of free workshops to the community. They are all listed below if you’d like to thank them in person:
We’d also like to thank all the brave attendees who came out between a series of winter storms on some very cold days. If you are already missing these workshops, this is actually the right time to start planning the next series of workshops. Come by the shop during our regular hours if you’d like to help out!
We are sorry to suspend our normally scheduled Sunday activities but we’d rather you not slip and wreck yourself and your bike on today’s icy roads. Today’s volunteer training and general meeting will all be rescheduled and the next open shop is this Wednesday. But don’t fret, it’s almost spring!
On Monday, February 17, Eric Berendsen of Reser OTR will present “Hubs and Bearings.”
“Hubs are those places on your bike where things spin or rotate. Very few people ever have the chance to see inside the mechanical mystery that is the hub. Making sure your hubs rotate smoothly can save you a lot of time and money in the long term. Who wants to discover that they need to replace critical bike parts to keep on riding? It’s a sad day when you find out that you should have taken better care of your hubs. But no one will need to ask who’s crying now, and you won’t need to wonder why somethin’ good can hurt so bad, if you keep your hubs properly greased and adjusted.”
All workshops are free and open to the public; ALL levels of experience are welcome! The atmosphere is relaxed and bikes are not required. Come learn with us about a variety of topics, including basic maintenance, roadside repair, modern components, and wheel maintenance.
The Winter Workshop Series happens Mondays (7-8:30pm) from January 13th through February 24th at MoBo, 1415 Knowlton Ave.
