The Chainlink

There will be a Bike Wash on May 24 at North Center Town Square, Belle Plaine and Damen. If you can volunteer please let me know! As usual we supply the cleaning supplies (ie rags, soap, degreaser, toothbrushes, chain lube.) If you know someone that would like to donate put them in touch. 

The first bike wash will benefit Coonley Elementary School!

There will be a 2nd bike wash on June 21st at the Green Music Fest in Wicker Park. We'll need volunteers not only for the bike wash BUT they also want to power the singer/songwriter stage by BIKE! This is going to be a large undertaking and they have asked for help. They will need a minimum of 48 bikers spread out between noon and 8 pm on the 21st and 22nd. That's a minimum of 6 bikers per hour for 8 hours. In total there will be 8 bikes hooked up to the stage. So we'll need many, many volunteers.

The 2nd Bike Wash will benefit the Wicker Park Scholarship program!

If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering or donating please get in contact!

Thanks,
gabe

Cancelled. I haven't heard back from the Alderman's office for actual approval despite having heard from CPD and getting their approval. Unsure if the ward or organizations within are not interested in charity but with the event planned for next Saturday there is not enough time to adequetely publicize and get together. Thanks to those that expressed interest. Bummed for CPS but that's Chicago for ya.

thanks for the update gabe. yes - disappointed for the kids; oh well...

That's bizzare.  He's a great alderman and supports both Coonley and the Bicycles.  I think it must have fallen through the cracks.   I guess Coonley was out due to the construction.
