Durham Bike Co-op :: Grand Opening :: Sun, Mar 25, 1-6pm

Press Release
New Release Date: immediately

Durham Bike Co-Op opens its doors 1pm Sunday, March 25th

DURHAM -- This Sunday, March 25th, the Durham Bicycle Co-op opens its doors at 1pm. The Durham Bike Co-op (DBC) is a collective bicycle workspace that seeks to act as a hub for positive community development and interaction through bicycle skills-sharing. The DBC is member-driven, member-funded, and most importantly, fun! Membership dues shall be set on a sliding scale available to participants of all income levels.

Aside from the pleasure of riding bicycles, members of the DBC believe that bikes are a vital vehicle for sociality and movement and that they offer a real alternative to the automobile.

The Durham Bike Co-op is located at 723 N. Mangum St., which is located in Durham’s historic Little Five Points neighborhood.

From 1-3pm on Sunday, Co-op members will be hosting an open house. A grill-your-own potluck will take place on site, behind the Co-op’s workspace. From 3-5pm, test your balance and agility in a game of bike polo and other activities. And from 5-6pm, cyclists will share a downtown cruiser ride.

Co-op membership is open to any Durham community member who is interested in joining. Membership is mutually beneficial to the member-owner and the Co-op; new membership helps the co-op to offer more services within the community, while co-op members gain access to the collective workspace, tools, skills and activities otherwise unavailable in Durham.

Membership forms will be available at the Co-op on Sunday and are also available for download from the Co-op’s website; Membership Form .pdf

Very cool, I hope you guys have great luck with that. Our own Sopo bike co-op is always a great resource and a great place to hang out.

And a really excellent logo.
