Recruiting Paid Coordinator & Volunteers for Kids’ Day

***Update: Job application deadline extended to 4 P.M. 5.29.17***

We at the MoBo Bike Co-op are reaching out to community members to spread the word about our summer youth programming, Kids’ Day. It runs every Monday of summer (except 4th of July week) from 5 until 8. Youth are able to drop in and work on their own bike one-on-one with an adult volunteer. Those without bikes are able to earn one of their own. While kids are waiting their turn to work with a mechanic, we provide supplemental programming, often with the aid of partner organizations, which have included such neighborhood regulars Happen Inc and Wordplay. We also have helmets available thanks to donors and the Children’s Hospital. All of this is provided free of charge.

To operate smoothly Kids’ Day requires adult volunteers, and we are continually recruiting more. Kids’ Day also merits our organization’s only paid position: we have a small stipend available for a part-time Coordinator, and are actively looking for candidates. Neither volunteers nor the coordinator need to have an extensive knowledge of bikes; the main requirement is an excitement for hands on learning and youth self-empowerment. If you know of anyone who would be interested in participating, we would appreciate it if you would let them know. Find the official job posting here:

Annual Plant and Bike Sale



We’re cleaning up the grill becaus our Annual Plant & Bike Sale is less than one week away! Stop by Saturday May 13 between 10am and 1pm to pick from over two dozen refurbished bikes and 43 varieties of plants, or just to say hi.


Shop Closed for Easter

Our volunteers will be spending this weekend riding bikes and visiting family, so no Open Shop on Sunday. See you next week!

February Goings On

It might be winter (though that seems up for question sometimes), but that doesn’t mean that the shop shuts down!

With normal shop and volunteer hours slowing down, there is energy left over to plan and get ready for the next season. If you want to get involved in making decisions on how the co-op is run, now’s a great time.

At the Village Green Board meeting on Sunday the 12th at 6PM we’ll be discussing the possibilities for an edible forest on the Boyd Street lot, ideas for summer Kids’ day, and developing more workshops for the end of winter.

Speaking of workshops, the following Saturday, the 18th, we’ll be putting all those used flower pots you brought in at a Seed Starting Workshop hosted by board members and expert gardeners Sharon and Julz. Check the Village Green Facebook page for details.

This Monday, the 6th at 7 PM, will be the first meeting of the year for the Mechanics/Shop Committee. This committee is largely responsible for keeping Open Shop running, and for training new mechanics to spread the good word of bike repair. Agenda items include an overhaul of the used parts storage, our spring bike sale, and a winter workshop and certification series.

We Need Plastic Garden Pots!
