What we did in the past…

FreeRider Workshop — summary

Here’s a handful of snapshots from the workshop we had yesterday in Sindikat Biciklista.

My thanks to everyone who came and those who helped remotely.

While we did not close the budget gap (further donations welcome, of course), the main goal was achieved: several people from different walks of life met yesterday and worked shoulder-to-shoulder for couple hours, learning how to build essential part of community infrastructure.

We hope (funding permitting) that we’ll be able to launch new editions of FreeRider workshop early next year. We also plan new construction to be presented: aluminium EasyRider trailer, simple woodstove accessories and more.

Stay tuned!
