Bike Station AGM

Posted by chdot on August 11, 2006

Bike Station Waverley 2005

You’ve probably heard of The Bike Station (currently in the basement of Waverley Station). You might even have been there to donate a bike, buy a new (second-hand) one or hire a stand to fix your bike. Or perhaps you’ve seen BS staff at an event or doing a Dr. Bike or delivering Cycle Training.

It’s Edinburgh’s most successful (non-commercial) bike project. It started life as Castlecliff Bicycle Workshop. There are now seven paid people plus a host of volunteers. All are helping to make Edinburgh even more of a cycling city.

The Bike Station is a registered charity and is about to have its Annual General Meeting. Chairman Chris Brace says “this is an opportunity for the (voluntary) management committee to reflect on the past year and elect the board’s directors for the coming year. It is also a chance for volunteers and other people interested in the Bike Station to meet the committee and learn more about what the Bike Station is up to.”

“Volunteers to join the committee and help with the management of the project are welcomed – please contact myself if you are interested.”

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s that time of year again. The Festival (and its even larger Fringe) is in town.

Once again Fringe Sunday is being held on the Meadows (August 13 11-5pm) – lots of free entertainment and activities.

TryCycling in Edinburgh will be having a stall again for handing out free leaflets, selling Spokes Maps and generally encouraging people to Try Cycling.

Will & Ed the Tall Bike men are expected to cycle by.

If you would like to help, contact Maggie of TCIE.
