Volunteers Needed for Brooklyn Bike Jumble

Hello Members!

We are seeking volunteers for a 5BBC table at the New York Bicycle Jumble on Saturday, September 9th, at the Old Stone House, Fifth Ave & 4th St, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Please email Volunteer Coordinator Eric Brooks at if you can help. Let me know what hours you can help out.

We anticipate the following schedule:

  • 9:00 a.m.: Help set up a lightweight table, banner, and other supplies.
  • 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm: Staff the table and be a Club ambassador who explains the Club to people attending the Jumble.

As the Jumble wraps up around 4:00 pm, we'll need to pack up and carry a lightweight table, banner and supplies about 2 blocks.

The Bicycle Jumble is like a giant bike flea market. Vendors come from the east coast to sell new and used bikes, new and used bicycle accessories, bike clothing and gear, and anything else bicycle-related. The 5BBC will have a table there and we need volunteers who will chat with people attending the Jumble, explain what the Club is, how our rides operate (from Happy Face to Quick Spin, including point-drop-sweep), highlight upcoming rides, promote club memberships and have people sign up for our mailing list. If possible, volunteers will help with minor repairs and tire inflation. This is a great opportunity to promote the Club.

Note: I hope that there will be at least one 5BBC ride to or from the Jumble. This calendar page is not an actual ride. Any rides will be listed separately. (Feel free to ride over to meet us, though.) If you click the "Register" button, I will add you to the list of volunteers and check what times you are available.
