URBAN BIKE PROJECT OF WILMINGTONINC
September 22, 2011

I love volunteering (and working on my own bikes) at UBP. No egos, no politics, no meetings, no obligations, no stress... Just nice respectful and helpful people who love bikes, and love helping others get the most out of their bikes. Plenty of know-how to go around -- I learn something new every time I go in. Whether you like helping newbies pick out a bike, like to organize things, or want to learn how to take a bike apart into 200 pieces and put it back together, there's a role for every level of experience, even if you don't know anything about bikes (yet). I sometimes bring in my 9 yr old "assistant", and she loves it, too.

Rock on UBP!
