Bike!Bike! is 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.
This year, we will have special access to Los Angeles State Historic Park (LASHP) in Chinatown, at the edge of Downtown. Our conference will start there with check-ins and be the site in which many workshops and recreational activities will take place. With support from Los Angeles River State Parks Partners, 30 large tents, sleeping bags and mats will be provided for out-of-town registrants who choose to tent/camp as the housing option. Camping at LASHP will be a unique and memorable experience even for L.A. natives, but solidarity housing is still a viable option, and we will accommodate everyone as much as we can.
Whether you will register or not, please consider helping us out if you will be in town. A separate volunteer sign up sheet is available here.
