hey, this is macho, from the bike dump, in winnipeg, canada. our website is at http://bike-dump.ca
i probably met some of you folks at bike!bike! troy just filled me in that this site is being built. i would love to see a wiki with page topics like "developing an earn-a-bike program", "d.i.y. shop truing stand", "practicing anti-racism in a bike shop", "why collectives are important," or whatever people want to add develop out of this.
i know some things about computers, so if you all ever need help with that side of things, let me know. i can also try to help out in whatever other ways are needed.
in case any pittsburgh folks are on here (bike!bike! is happening in pittsburgh next year right?), the bike dump would like to bottomline contacting canadian bike collectives and encouraging them to attend. we can do mailouts, get on the phone, whatever. let us know.
here's a quick update on our space: the jerky developer we were renting our space from went and sold the building and we have to be out by november! if any of you were at our (anti-)gentrification caucus, you'll know more details about that. we're talking about buying a house and operating out of that, which could be pretty exciting!
oh and does anyone have contact info for that guy (can't remember his name right now) who did the "strange bikes" workshop at bikebike 2006, or any other milwaukee kids who could get me in touch with him? thanks.
take care you all, macho
hey macho! barb from kingston here. i was thinking of coming for a visit to
winnipeg, for maybe a week. i will be in thunder bay at the end of
september, and i would maybe be in winnipeg the second week of october.
tell me if you see any need for me to help out there, or if not, if there are fun people and places to hang out (cause i am mostly thinking of going because of you bike people and your project and furthering connections...)
