WTF at YBP

We are VERY excited to announce the revival of our Women/Trans/Femme  workshop! We will be hosting regular W/T/F shops every 2nd and 4th Monday night from 6-9 p.m. Come hang out! Come wrench with us! No experience necessary.

This workshop is run similarly to our community workshops but in a supportive, all Women/Trans/Femme (WTF) atmosphere.

WTF hours are open to anyone who identifies as female, transgender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine, or feels that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson, and/or femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics.

(WTF language borrowed from the BICAS -Bicycle Inter-Community Art and Salvage website)

Bring your own bike project (or see what we have!) and use our tools with W/T/F-identifying mechanics on hand to guide you and answer your questions.  Learn how to fix your bike, earn a bike through our Earn-a-Bike program or volunteer around the shop.
