In the past few years Rosewood has held two Bike Fairs, a Bicycle Safety Fiesta with over 800 attendees, a Commuter workshop with Community Cycling Center and SE Works, a Repair Cafe fixing over 20 bikes, added 4 bike racks to our storefront, and so much more. We are ready to build an AWESOME little shop at Rosewood!
We are so proud and excited to be the recipients of an Awesome Portland award to build a MUCH needed mini bike shop at Rosewood Community Center. Let us know if you’d like to help! We are just getting this off the ground and we will need volunteer bike mechanics to help neighbors learn how to make minor repairs on their own bikes. If you’re interested in learning some new skills in order to help out at Rosewood, we can get you involved at Community Cycling Center to start!
Check out this post on Awesome’s site for the details about the award:
We’d like to thank the Meyer Memorial Trust for awarding The Rosewood Initiative with this grant!
