Bike!Bike!: an international, annual gathering organized by and for community bicycle projects. The conference is a space for participants from shops and related advocacy groups to converge in a different city each year over a 4 day period to have workshops and strengthen our social network.
Volunteer Mechanic Lexi Janezic and myself traveled to Tijuana, Mexico to represent the Iowa City Bike Library this past October. Bike!Bike! is a one-of-a-kind experience open to anyone who wishes to connect with community bike shop folks who believe that the bicycle is a vehicle for revolution. Lexi and I wanted to share a few highlights from our trip; primarily with ICBL volunteers, but also for anyone thinking about attending next year in Mexico City.
Audrey is the Executive Director at the Iowa City Bike Library and has been looking forward to attending B!B! for the last eight years. It did not disappoint!
