Bike Cart Building Workshop! !All Skills and Interests Welcome!

when: Sat. – Sun. April 20th – 21st  10:00 am – 4:00 pm  

where: Freewheel Community Bike Shop (1804 S. Park St. #5) 

This Earth Week Madison’s Freewheel Community Bike Shop will be hosting a weekend workshop exploring and practicing the construction of bicycle carts.  Using an easy design, low cost parts, and simple fabrication skills & tools, participants will share with each other basic skills and perhaps BUILD a cart for themselves as well!!  You’ll experience the basics of steel conduit bending and cutting and basic Oxy-acetylene welding. The workshop will be split into two days.  Saturday will be focused on learning and skill sharing and getting the process down.  Sunday will be more of a construction event where we’ll all attempt putting together roughly ten or more bicycle carts in a large spectacular group effort.

The public is welcome to view each day’s events for FREE, but a small donation to Freewheel will allow folks hands-on practice and use of tools the whole weekend.  And if you pre-register before Apr 18th, for a sliding-scale $25-50 you can sign-up to construct and take home your very own cart.    REGISTER SOON for details!  We’re also looking for volunteers.  So, if you have a few skills to share and would like to help volunteer please register as well.  Info?  clint.freund@gmail.com or #920-763-5970
