Someone emailed to ask about getting their community bike shop involved in Bike!Bike! and eventually potentially hosting a regional or even main Bike!Bike!. Here's the email we sent in response:
- There's Bike!Bike! the in-person conference which is next happening in Mexico City. The only contact information we have for them is [email protected] and I would recommend emailing them in Spanish and seeing if they need anything. The next main conference is always voted on at the end of the previous conference.
- There's Bike!Bike! Everywhere, which is an online conference that happened last year. It will happen again this year or next. If you'd like, I can add you to the listserve for B!B!E! organizing volunteers. Just let me know.
- Regional conferences happen whenever someone in a region decides to throw one! And/or are decided regionally. I don't know what the history of regional B!B!s is in your region, but if you decide to host one, we can set you up with admin access to a bikebike.org page for it.
You can take a look at https://en.bikebike.org/conferences/ to see what's happened in the past. (Big and regional. Not all past conferences are listed.)
Ways to reach out to people in your region include the ThinkTank listserv ( https://www.bikecollectives.org/#think-tank-register ), social media (good luck, I have no idea), and doing a search for community bike orgs in various cities and towns in your region and updating the page on the wiki at https://www.bikecollectives.org/wiki/Community_Bicycle_Organizations or letting me know so I can, and then dropping an email or a postcard or a phone call or something.
