Hone your mechanical skills at The Bike House, or just attend a bike-in movie
From The Bike House:
Join The Bike House and BicycleSPACE, our friendly community bike shop (and so much more!), for dinner and a screening of the documentary With My Own Two Wheels at BicycleSPACE.
The film weaves together the stories of five individuals across the globe into a single narrative about the bicycle as a vehicle for change. With on-the-ground stories from Zambia, Ghana, India, Guatemala, and California, the film was produced in collaboration with bicycle-driven development organizations, including World Bike Relief and Santa Barbara’s Bici Centro.
The film crew will be joining us for the screening and dinner (provided by BicycleSPACE), including the Producer, Jacob Siegel-Boettner. Following the film, Jacob will be available for a discussion about the movie, and will provide the opportunity to sponsor a bike for a student in Zambia through World Bike Relief.
Bring something to sit on, or just yourself and some friends! We'll provide the food, film, and atmosphere.

Interested in volunteering with the Bike House? No matter what your level of expertise, Anyone can get involved witha Saturday clinics, the mobile clinic, event organization, and more. We hold volunteer orientations on the first Saturday of every month. You should come!
The Bike House also holds beginner mechanics classes for people who are interested in bikes but haven’t taken the plunge into working on them. The class meets four times, beginning the first Saturday of the month.
Classes cover basic bike maintenance skills that are useful for every rider to know, including inspecting your bike, patching a flat tire, changing brake pads, adjusting derailleurs, and changing a spoke.
Email Sarah at thebikehouse @ gmail.com for more information on volunteering or enrolling in the beginner classes.
