REMINDER: THIS IS A VIRTUAL CONFERENCE. DUE TO PANDEMIC, WE WILL NOT MEET IN PERSON. NOT EVEN IN ANTARCTICA.
*********VIEW THE MAIN EVENT PAGE HERE********
The dates for Bike!Bike! Everywhere! 2021 are Friday, November 12 - Sunday, November 14.
Bike!Bike! is an international get-together where people share experiences and ideas about community bike projects. It is for groups that use the bicycle as an excuse to educate -- to change society, economy and the environment.
The classic Bike!Bike! is normally hosted by a different city each year, over a 4-day period. There are also regional events like Bike!Bike! Northeast or Bike!Bike! Southwest.
Bike!Bike! Everywhere! 2021 is online, so you don't have to bike thousands of miles to get there. Also so we don't spread germs.
You don't have to be an expert or belong to a huge group, you just need to be willing to share what you know about organization, teaching, learning, pandemic management, mechanics, social impact, diversity, equity, inclusion, better access to bicycles or knowledge and social issues in your community or city.
Thank you for completing your registration. We'll see you (virtually) at Bike!Bike! Payment is by donation. To help us fund the interpreters, we ask that you pay the registration donation as soon as you can. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the registration process asking me about housing and food? I thought this was a virtual conference!
Yep. It's a virtual conference, but the website was designed for in-person events. Some of those questions are baked into the design, and we can't change them. Answer however you like - we'll disregard them. We cannot feed or house you on the internet. (-:
Why are you using Zoom/Discord?
We chose to prioritize Bike!Bike!'s tradition of Language Justice. We would love to use platforms that are open source and end-to-end encrypted, but we aren't aware of any open source software or end-to-end encrypted platforms with simultaneous interpretation features in the same league as Zoom. Discord has good machine translation features and a much friendlier user interface than any of the alternatives we have found. If you think there's another platform that would be a better fit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to hear about it for next year!
Who is organizing this?
Volunteers & compañerxs (companions)! Most of us are or have been involved in bike collectives/other community bike organizations/cross-language projects. Bike Farm in Portland, OR is handling the finances.
How do I donate money?
You can donate to help fund Bike!Bike! Everywhere! when you register.
Why donate money?
We would love to pay translators and interpreters this year - translation and simultaneous interpretation are a lot of work and require some serious skill. If there are funds left over, they will be set aside for future Bike!Bike! events.
I want to volunteer!
It's not too late! Email email@example.com. We need you!
