Calling all of you bike mechanic afficionados! Those of you that love nothing more than the sweet smell of grease, the clanking of tools, the ticking of freewheels. If you like fixing bikes and speak Spanish, we need you!
BiciDigna (“A Dignified Bicycle” in Spanish) is an exciting new collaborative project of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, the Bicycle Kitchen, and IDEPSCA. We are a community bike repair space at the Downtown Community Job Center, and work with Latino cyclists every week. We began our project out of the great need for low-cost bike repair and bikes, with the vision of creating a community fixture where Latino cyclists can congregate and fix bikes, and host bike rides.
Ideal volunteers would be interested in some or all of the following: Speak at least intermediate Spanish, feel very comfortable fixing bikes, and doing some light building/construction (i.e., building cabinets for bike tools, etc.) We typically do bike mechanic workshops once a week in the morning.
