Eventbrite - Third Annual Day of Dialogue and Demonstrations Women Bike Chicago: March 2015

Want to share your bike love?  Volunteers wanted too!

It takes a lot of awesome women to put on a show.

Our third annual Day of Dialog and Demo is no different.  We need women to assist with
  • Registration
  • The Bike Petting Zoo
  • Information and snack tables
  • Greeting participants and answering questions
  • Monitoring presenters/rooms (time keeping!) and 
  • Watching young'uns in our child care area.  
  • And as always, early set up and late break down. 

We have shifts from 1-2 hours--you can sign up for multiple shifts, and also volunteer and attend sessions!

e-mail volunteer @ womenbikechicago . org if you're interested! 

Presenting... The schedule for the Third Annual Day of Dialogue and Demonstration!

Please note changes to Bike Maint 101 -the morning and afternoon sessions will have different content

All day: 
  • Information tables for How to Lock, How to be Seen, and our ever-popular Bike Zoo where you can test ride cargo bikes, upright bikes, and more!   
  • Check out the CTA bike rack – the ones you see on the front of buses – and practice putting your bike on it! 
  • Also look for women to discuss Kids Care/Riding with kids to answer questions on how to ride with kids from newborns to teens!
