Women, trans and femme identified persons have traditionally not been as welcome in a shop setting and may be deterred from learning how to perform maintenance on their own bike due to past experience or societal precedents. The aim of WTF Night (Women, Trans, Femme) is to break down these barriers, and provide a safe space for anyone who identifies as such to ask questions, receive instruction and become oriented to the shop.
This event is held every Monday from 6 P.M.- 9 P.M.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help with this event, as it is currently open shop! When there are workshops scheduled, the event is structured as such:
6:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M.: Open Shop- Bring in your bicycle to work solo, or with staff
7:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M.: Workshop of the Week
8:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M.: Questions regarding the workshop
We will have a list of workshops scheduled soon. Please check back to see what the topics are! For now, we are having open shop the entire duration. Come with questions and we will provide knowledge.
These workshops will start promptly at 7 P.M, and are FREE, though if you do have money to donate to keep our space and this program running we appreciate it. We encourage you to bring your own bicycles (BYOB).
You are still welcome to come and ask questions that do not pertain to the selected workshop before 7 P.M. If you would like to help volunteer during WTF Night, please contact Shaina at email@example.com
**Note: If you want to participate in Bike Co-op events and do not identify as woman, trans, or femme please come to one of our other open hour days that happen EVERY Tuesday from 5pm-9pm, Saturday 10am-6pm and Sunday from 12pm-5pm where everyone is welcome, including men, women and all other gender identities. Thank you for your support.**
