Hi all,My pal Tony runs a youth program in Hartford, Connecticut, and they've opened up a community bike shop and are looking for a manager. 20-35 hours/week, includes benefits. Wrenching skills a must, English/Spanish bilingual preferred. Here's the job listing:http://careers.ctnonprofits.org/c/job.cfm?job=26759760&vnet=0&str=1&max=25&long=1Tony also wants to sell y'all on Hartford, which has come a long way in the past decade. Here's what he has to say: "Hartford is a really cool city and ridiculously affordable for someone that doesn't own a car and is OK with living in one of the neighborhoods. Dense city and easy to get out via bike to outdoorsy stuff. On the CT River. World class cultural amenities and a vibrant arts scene.Couple recent articles on what we're up to. We've been media darlings over the last 6 months and that's going to be really helpful as we go after the grants to build out the storefront bike shop. Lots of support from the city (mayor's on board), DOT donates my bike lights, and UCONN is sending us trucks full of bikes. This city is hungry for bikes, but not a typical bike shop.http://wnpr.org/post/hartford-shop-teaches-kids-engineering-and-science-through-bike-repairstream/0http://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/hc-ap-uconn-abandoned-bicycles-20151224-story.htmlAnd this is really neat. The first time I've seen a city embed Complete Streets into zoning code. I was involved in the review and revisions of the Complete Streets chapter. http://blog.tstc.org/2016/01/22/a-walkable-bikeable-future-hartford-has-it/<end quote!>"I'm just the messenger on this, but if you are thinking about applying and have questions about the position, I'm happy to connect you with Tony.

Hi all,I'm part of an all-volunteer bike advocacy group, and we have a difficult individual in our group. He is obnoxious at events and meetings (like interrupts, steamrolls over others, gets off-topic), does things without consulting the group, and several women have had such bad encounters with him in the past that they won't come to our meetings because he may be there. He has also said sexist things to a woman member at one of our events. One of our male co-chairs has talked to him about his sexist talk, and I created a code of conduct in response to this, specifically to deal with this individual. My fellow co-chairs and I are attempting to set up another meeting with him to talk to him about recent behavior face-to-face, but he claims he is innocent and is being evasive. I am at the end of my rope with him and completely fed up with the situation. I'm ready to kick him out. Has anyone dealt with a similar situation? If so I would love, love, love to hear any advice. Thanks!

Hello ladies! BlackGirlsDoBike.com will be hosting our first national meetup in Atlanta in June 2016. We expect more than 500 (potentially 1000) lady cyclists to participate in our planned events the weekend June 10-12, 2016.

June 11th will be the main event, our takeover of the Atlanta Tour De Cure, a ride for Diabetes. June 12th will be our Belt-line recovery ride hosted by the ladies of Black Girls Do Bike: Atlanta and ending with a celebration in Piedmont Park. We are reaching out to potential sponsors as we are seeking event sponsors to help make this first of its kind event a success and to expose our lady riders to some cycling brands and organizations. We are also open to any other creative ideas regarding participation in or ways to enhance our weekend’s events.Any advice on how to go about securing sponsors especially those willing to donate cash. Most companies we have reached out to so far are offering in kind items for our swag bags and raffle giveaways, which is great but we really need cash to secure venues, a caterer and a photographer. I put together an event sponsorship packet which explains who we are (history/stats/demographics), our media exposure, website hit stats and our finally our ask which has several tiers $4000, $2500, $1000, $500 and in exchange we are offering logo placement on our event banner, photo booth backdrop, logo placement and on our website for up to 1 year. Any suggestions and advice from you efforts to secure sponsors would be greatly appreciated.Event details:http://www.blackgirlsdobike.com/!bgdb-national-meet-up-2016/cafcThanks in advance!

Hi Wheelwomen!I co-wrote this open letter to San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and the Board of Supervisors asking them to pass the bike yield law in SF. http://brokeassstuart.com/blog/2016/01/08/an-open-letter-to-city-hall-in-support-of-the-bike-yield-law/Mayor Lee has been very open that he will veto the law when it crosses his desk.As far as I know Idaho is the only place in the U.S. where the "Idaho Stop" is law. Has anyone had any luck convincing city government around this issue? Also, if you are in SF, would you please read my article, and please forward/share/tweet with your people, and write to your elected officials?Thank you! We are trying very hard and doing all we can to get this legislation passed.Kristin
