Would you like to volunteer to help on Thursday or Saturday at the Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative? Write the Volunteer Coordinator.

Today, the BBC is sponsored in part by Genesis Bicycles and Apex Management .

Perhaps you would like to sponsor all or some part of the days’ events. We need help paying for helmets, instructor time and other bills. It costs about $150 for Thursday evening and $500 for all day Saturday to run the BBC. A significant contribution towards these costs by you or your business will be prominently displayed as a sponsor for the day including documentation within this report. Please write now if you are interested. Write the Bike Director
