1. Call for Volunteers to Staff Shifts: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and/or Sundays

The new Sauce Space is bigger and better than ever before! But with the added space, we need more volunteers to help run the shop. We’re looking for 2 or 3 people for each of the following shifts:

Tuesdays 5-9
Thursdays 5-9
Saturday 12-6
Sunday 12-6

We’re looking for both mechanical and non-mechanical help. We need an extra wrench or two to help in the repair space and at least one other volunteer to help staff the front desk (greeting, answering general Sauce questions, cashing people out, etc).

It would be ideal if interested volunteers can commit to a shift for every week during the summer, though if you can come every-other-week, that would be useful too!

If you are at all interested in helping us keep Sauce up and running by taking on a shift, please email Ben, our new Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer(at)bikesauce(dot)org.

2. Ward Check-Up/Audit: Sun June 26: 9am – 12pm

SoDa Bikes Advocacy Group is joining the Bike Union for a city-wide Ward Check-Up on Sunday June 26. Each ward-based advocacy group will be taking a bike tour of their ward to identify the great, the mediocre and the horrible bike infrastructure around the neighbourhood. The data collected during the audit will be turned into a report and submitted to our Councillors and City Hall.

Join SoDa Bikes on the Ward 30 Check-Up!
Sunday, June 26
9am – 12pm
Meet at: Toronto Public Library, North West corner of Gerrard and Broadview

We will end the ride around 11am at BikeSauce, where we will debrief from 11-12 and enjoy (free!) lemonade and cookies! Even if you don’t join the audit, feel free to come by Sauce for the post-audit debrief!

3. MEC BikeFest! Sat June 25, 10am – 6pm

Along with fun and festivities, MEC BikeFest is a hub of knowledge where cyclists new and old can make connections and get the information they need to pursue their passion. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation.

Sauce will have an epic 15-20 bike stands ready to wrench on the city’s bikes! If you’re interested in helping out, contact events(at)bikesauce(dot)org.

And want to get yourself even more pumped? Check out our pictures from last year!
