Bike Build for North Bay Fire Victims – Day Three

December 7 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Bike Build for North Bay Fire Victims – Day Three

Day 3 – More than halfway there – help more bikes! The goal is 100 bikes in just 4 days!
We all know people whose lives were forever changed by the recent fires that ravaged Sonoma County and the North Bay.

Bicycle Brustop in Novato has found an impactful way to give our neighbors to the north a boost as they start the process of rebuilding their lives. Giant Bicycles has generously offered to donate 200 bikes to victims of the North Bay fires, but the bike shops in the impacted areas only have the capacity to take about half of them. Giant is going to ship the other 100 bikes to Bicycle Brustop in Novato, and they will assemble them, arrange their transportation to the impacted areas, and distribute to those in need, all by December 10th!

This is a significant undertaking, and they will not be successful without help from volunteers.

There are currently three tasks in which Bicycle Brustop needs assistance: 

If you can help with any of these tasks or requests – please call Bicycle Brustop at (415) 408-3363 or email them: bikes@bicyclebrustop.com

  1. Bike builders and bike build helpers! Building 100 bikes and making sure they are safe to ride is a big job, so if you’re handy with a set of metric hex wrenches and own your own workstand, we need you! If you’re not sure which end of a screwdriver is the business end, that’s OK, you can still help us deal with all of the boxes and packing material the bikes will come shipped in. Bike build parties will be held every day from 3 PM –  7 PM on 12/5 through 12/8. Please let us know which night(s) you will attend, our space is limited so we’ll need to coordinate accordingly.
  2. Food Service and Meals for volunteers! There will be a bunch of hungry bike-build-partiers hanging out at the Novato shop four nights in a row, and Bicycle Brustop would love to be able to reward their volunteer efforts with a meal. Do you own a restaurant (or know somebody who does)? They’d love to talk to you about sponsoring one night of our event.
  3. A place to store these bikes before they’re built! Do you have extra corner of a warehouse, an empty office space, or some other square footage that you can lend us? We would only need the space for about a week.
