About our Women and Queer shop hours

The Bridge City Bicycle Co-op (BCBC) strives to provide equal opportunity to all of
our members. We aim to create a safer place and promote balance in a historically
cismale-dominated field by offering a Women and Queer shop hours on the 2nd
Monday(winter hrs) of each month for persons who self-identify as woman, trans, two-spirit,and/or non-binary.

We invite anyone who identifies as woman, trans, two-spirit, and/or non-binary to
participate in our Women and Queer program by dropping in. There is no need to
pre-register. The shop will be lead exclusively by volunteers who self-identify as
women, trans, two-spirit, and/or non-binary. Gender will not be policed during these hours.

The purpose of our Women and Queer shop hours is to help encourage and empower
those who have been deterred from learning bike maintenance due to past
experiences. The BCBC welcomes these communities to learn bike maintenance in
a supportive and unapologetic environment.

If you do not identify as woman, trans, two-spirit, or non-binary, we ask you
support this important initiative by respecting the space and not entering during
the Women and Queer shop hours. Instead, feel free to drop by during our weekly
scheduled shop hours on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

If you have any questions about this program, please send us a message.
