Tandem to Borrow or Rent in Chicago?

Hello! I'm hoping to find a tandem to borrow (or rent!) for any weekend in July. If you have one or know where I could rent one, please let me know! I recently made a new friend who is very visually impaired. She hasn't been on a bike since she was really little (that is, before she lost her vision). I was telling her about my bike adventures and realized that the only way she could experience riding a bike now would be on a tandem, so I'm trying to figure out how to make that happen! Thanks!

Cycling Women's History Book Project Campaign

Hi everyone! I've just launched a GoFundMe campaign for Cycling Women's History -- a cycling guide that will trace the women's history sites in New York state. http://www.GoFundMe.com/cyclinghistory The project has the potential to expand to other states, but for the first book, I will focus on New York State. The guide will include profiles of over 30 women, that were part of the women's suffrage movement or made other significant contributions to the empowerment of women and girls. The research so far has been amazing. I have found some really incredible women, and we all know that there are incredible women, everywhere, making a difference. I have created other tours -- 1996 The Peace Tour -- a cross country tour that did service at 10+ peace and environmental organizations across the country. And a tour tracing the Underground Railroad, that we had a group of urban teens on. The bicycle was instrumental in the empowerment of women and continues to be a valuable tool for women and girls. The campaign is to help fund the publishing of a full color guide with a professional graphic designer doing the layout. Some funds will be used for route mapping, route research and development. I welcome ideas, feedback and partnerships. I would love everyone's help in sharing the campaign. I think it will be an exciting project and a resource for women and girls in the future. There is something powerful about being in the place where history happened. You can feel the energy of the women that stood there years and years ago, that dreamed of equality, the right to vote and fought hard for more rights for women. Arriving on bicycle, adds to the learning, the time to see the countryside, reflect on each place visited, interact with the community.....you know -- it is great riding a bike!! We will be riding the route this summer. My partner, Ken, and our two daughters. We will be video blogging, posting pictures from the road and sharing our experience of the route. We will be gathering more info for the book and refining the route I have developed so far. Thanks for your support! The idea of the tour was born more than 13 years ago. The idea to make it a book was born right here on Wheelwomen. Much gratitude to you all! http://www.GoFundMe.com/cyclinghistory

Job teaching basic bike mechanic skills

In search of ... a good mechanic (don't need to be a pro) who is interested in 4 hours work every week next school year teaching middle school students how to fix bikes (basic work - nothing complex here). The pay is $20 per hour and the job is 2:30-4:30 Wednesday and Thursdays. It's in Herndon, VA -- a short bike ride from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station if you're car free. I'd love to have a woman in this position! I will support you from the admin end and can teach how to fix a flat, but I need someone more knowledgeable than I to teach them how to fix brakes, shifters and true wheels. We don't do anything much more complicated than that. You have to be able to pass employment criteria for Fairfax County Public Schools (TB Test, background check). You do not have to be a citizen, but you must be able to work legally. If you're interested, please email me privately. westenhoff at gmail dot com
