The Handlebar, Dickinson's bicycle cooperative, seeks enthusiastic student, staff, and faculty volunteers to help run the shop and increase bicycle use on campus.
The Handlebar, Dickinson's bicycle cooperative, is a hands-on bicycle repair shop dedicated to increasing bicycle use, repair services and bike-related knowledge on Dickinson's campus. Student, staff, and faculty volunteers are needed to open and close the shop, help other people fix their bicycles, and to be a part of the Biking@Dickinson programs. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend Handlebar volunteer training - whether you are a trained bicycle mechanic or just beginning to ride a bike! We will discuss The Handlebar's history and mission, inner workings and what it means to be a volunteer, how to open and close the shop and basic bicycle repair skills. Training starts at the Center for Sustainability Education (Kaufman 190) at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, September 6.
