OCBC will be closed Tuesday, July 19th all day for both retail shoppers
and volunteers and we will be closed Wednesday, July 20th to all retail
shoppers. Volunteers may still come in on Wednesday evening during
normal open hours from 5:00-9:00pm. We will still be having volunteer
orientation Wednesday evening at 7:00pm for those interested in getting
involved with our volunteer program. Thank you for understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience.
Since there were many folks interested in this ride but unable to attend in July, we will revisit Underground railroad sites in another special Social Ride on Saturday August 13th -- to coincide with Canalway Partner's Feast to the Beat party at Hart Crane Park, right outside our back door.
The route will focus on areas of historical importance related to the underground railroad in the 19th century, with narration by Deltrece Daniels and Station Hope board member Kevin Cronin. Meet at the Co-op after 10:00am, ride departs promptly at 10:20, and returns at noon. If you would like a loaner bike for the ride please let us know by Friday Aug. 12th.
Traffic Skills Ride on Saturday, July 9th
With the success of our weekly shop classes we have been looking forward to getting our Traffic Skills classes going as well. This Saturday, July 9th we will be holding a class at the Co-op to help folks feels more comfortable riding in traffic. A trained instructor will provide a little bit of lecture time in addition to a few drills in our parking lot before going on a ride around the downtown area to illustrate some issues that cyclists face when using the same roads as cars. This class is open to everyone no matter their skill level. The cost for the class is $25 (which can be paid for with volunteer credits) or FREE for anyone who has (ever!) purchased a bike from OCBC!
