Beer for Bikes 2014

Kick off the spring cycling season with our fourth annual "Beer for Bikes" social hour and fundraiser.  We have grown into a new location, Golden Valley Brewery, and we have over $2500 worth of goods and services to raffle off.  We are looking forward to seeing you.  A portion of food/drink proceeds and the sale of raffle tickets will go toward supporting WashCo BTC's mission to make bicycling better in Washington County.  Click here to see the poster and our prize donors. Use this link to see the event on Facebook and let your friends know you are going.

Adopt-A-Bike 2013

We are very proud of our 2013 Adopt-A-Bike donors and sponsors.  The generosity of many private donors, a generous gift of new bikes from the KPTV Fox 12 holiday toy drive, and a several bikes refurbished and donated by Poynter Middle School students made it possible to brighten over 30 children's holidays with the freedom of a new set of wheels. Our partner school, WL Henry Elementary, and Adelante Mujeres have helped us identify the eager and responsible children who will benefit from their newfound independence.  In the words of The Oregonian,  "It was a true team effort that brought joy to twenty-one students at W.L. Henry Elementary School on Thursday, December 19, when they received their very own bike through the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition’s (WashCo BTC) Adopt-A-Bike program."  Read more of our OregonLive coverage here.

Intel Volunteers Lend a Hand

A team of Intel volunteers joined us for the Global Volunteer Day on September 20.  They came to the shop to help us break down donated bikes for recycling or reuse of the salvageable parts. If you would like to volunteer, reach out to us at volunteer@washcobtc.org.  We are particularly interested in volunteers with bike mechanic skills or people interested in an ongoing, personally rewarding opportunity to work in our back office.

Chicas get their ride ready

LCI certified instructors worked with these young women from Adelante Mujeres "Chicas" program on basic bike safety and skills.  What's more, these girls have agreed to attend Saturday classes at Fern Hill Elementary school in Forest Grove where we will have two more classes for the Chica's. This time these girls will be helping the instructors teach. Can you think of a better way to start a leadership program?
