1. BikeSauce is On the Move! Re-Launch June 4, 12-6pm

Just one year after opening its doors on Queen Street East, BikeSauce, the East End bike repair shop and cycling advocacy organization, is moving to a new – bigger and better – location just up the street!

Come join the Sauciers at their Grand Opening on June 4, 2011.

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon.

When: Saturday, June 4, 2011
Where: BikeSauce, 235 Broadview Avenue (just south of Dundas)
Time: 12pm – 6pm
free coffee and baked goods!

Volunteers have been hard at work packing up BikeSauce at its Queen Street East location. On May 14, volunteers made the big move to the new location. Using almost entirely bikes and bike trailers, the entire shop – the social area, repair space and all of the bikes and tools – was all moved. ‘Sauce is now up and running and invites volunteers to help unpack and set up shop.

Just like its first location, the new shop houses a DIY space where users can come and learn how to repair and maintain their bikes. There is also a social space with couches and a library stocked full of resources where anyone can come, hang out and connect with other residents interested in promoting vibrant communities. The new location also has a full kitchen, where community members are welcome to come by and cook up a meal or snack for the shop.

4. Bells on Bloor Seeks Volunteers!

Bells on Bloor has now been scheduled for Saturday June 18 at noon. There is a small group of about six people that have taken the lead in organizing this year. BoB’s small planning committee needs help putting this thing together. They are also looking for volunteer bike marshals.

If you can help assist either in the planning or on the day, please contact Bells on Bloor at info@bellsonbloor.ca.

To get extra excited about the event, check out this video from Bells on Bloor 2010.
