Did you know Winnipeg has more Community Bike Shops than any other city in the world?! What better place to host the 10th Annual International Community Bike Shop conference; Bike!Bike!

Bike!Bike! is an international, annual gathering organized by and for community bicycle projects. The conference is a space for bike nerds from Community Bike Shops and related advocacy groups to converge in a different city each year over a 4 day period to have workshops and strengthen our social network.

Bike!Bike! isn't just about bike nerdery but more-so about social justice and how we're trying to make the world a more equitable, sustainable, radical place using bikes and bike-based education.

1) Participate!: If you think you have any sort of knowledge or skills that would be useful to share with a bunch of other rad, eager-to-learn peoples then please register to attend and put together a workshop.

2) Hosting conference attendees; Got a floor? Couch? Spare bed? Even a patch of grass would be great! If you're able and willing to host even one person please sign up asap! Just register for the conference as a host rather than a participant. It only takes 3 minutes!

3) Volunteer and/or Loan-a-bike — We're looking for volunteers to help out of course. Most volunteers will be needed in the week or two leading up to the conference and tasks are many and varied. We also may need some loaner bikes for attendees to borrow. If you're able to volunteer or loan a bike there's a quick volunteer survey here that you can fill out;

The cost is pay what you can with suggested amount between $50-$100 per person. This includes 2 meals per day, housing and a loaner bike. No one will be denied for lack of funds. Payment can be made with paypal during online registration. We do lose 5% to Paypal and also welcome cash, cheque (to «The Wrench») and credit card during in-person conference check-in.
