The Center for Bicycle Repair and Restoration (CBRR) is proud to announce its first paid position, a teacher who will take over the shop’s four-week introduction to bicycle repair and maintenance course. This new hire is a big step for the shop and means CBRR will be able to offer more classes and skill-building to the community.
To guarantee a good paying job while ensuring tuition remains based on a sliding scale, CBRR is hosting an event on Saturday, May 14th: a “Teacher Fund(ay)”. The goal is to raise funds to guarantee teachers will receive pay at a rate of $50/hour. As part of the Fund(ay), there will be multiple bike races, food, a marketplace featuring artists and craftspeople as well as sales of new and used components, finished bicycles, “project bicycles” (to be built or finished), wheelsets and tools.
