A date has been selected for Bike Bike 2010, Toronto.

August 12th to the 15th 2010.

Bike! Bike! is an international annual conference organized by and for Not-For-Profit bike projects. It takes place in a different city each year. This year it will be hosted by Bike Pirates in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

There will be an assortment of different workshops at Bike! Bike! geared towards helping bike projects better serve their intended communities. There will also be social events to help/encourage projects to netowork. Some things which may (or may not) take place include (but are not by any means limited to): Anti-oppression, Consensus Decision Making, and Working with Kids workshops as well as Spandex Dance Parties, Movies, and Bike Rides.

We're working hard on getting everything organized. Soon we'll have much more info available online as well as the ability to pre-register. For now, Canadians should sit tight, and Americans should make sure they'll hold valid passports for next summer.

Cleaning Up

For housekeeping reasons we have moved our content to a new blog which will be feeding directly onto the front page of our website bikepirates.com. We wanted a page that all Pirates could access and update easily, so a new blog was created.

Please head to bikepiratestoronto if you wish to keep following our adventures. Also check out the website for a new layout and tonnes of new content.

How to Bike Pirate...YAR!


Help keep our doors open to the public. If you are interested in bicycle mechanics or are akin to a D.I.Y. mentality, please volunteer your time.

Bike Pirates has two days put aside for new volunteers able and willing to learn how to interact with bicycles and cyclists.

Also please do not be shy for our Monday and Tuesday volunteer only hours. Come by Monday or Tuesday between 12-5pm and help us continually overhaul the Bike Pirates shop and bikes.
