The Freegan Bike Workshop is in need!
« on: June 14, 2010, 12:31:16 am »
Greetings all!


The Freegan Bike Workshop, based out of Brooklyn, NYC, is currently in need of a space to work from!

The FBW's goal is to provide free education, repair, parts, and bike-building to the surrounding community.

 If you know of anything free/cheap (including garages, empty lots, basements, etc.) in the Brooklyn (preferably Bed-Stuy) area, please let us know at fbw-organizers@gmail.com.  Thanks so much! 

Peace, love and happy & safe riding.

Just a heads-up: The word "freegan" can have a lot of negative connotations. While freeganism can mean different things, many people associate it with individuals focused at collecting/consuming discarded food (which is taboo in westernized culture).

This is not a judgement of the freegan culture, just an observation that you're running the risk of confusing the heck out of your potential audience, or inadvertantly alarming folks that would otherwise be interested in your group.
