Volunteers Are Needed For Brooklyn Bike Jumble, Saturday, May 18

Eric Brooks | Published on 5/8/2024

We are seeking member-volunteers for a 5BBC table at the New York Bicycle Jumble on Saturday, May 18, at the Old Stone House, Fifth Ave & 4th St, in Park Slope, Brooklyn. We especially need your help from 2:00-4:00 pm, but would appreciate help at other times if you can't help then.

The 5BBC will have a table there and we need members 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.

We anticipate the following schedule:

  • 9:15a.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 the table, banner and supplies.

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. If possible, volunteers will help with minor repairs and tire inflation. This is a great opportunity to promote the Club.

Please email Volunteer Coordinator Eric Brooks at if you can help or use the calendar to register at Let me know what hours you can help out and please include "Jumble" in the subject line of your email.

[In addition to our traditional outreach activities, there will be an area where

Club members may sell cycling-related products that they no longer need. Capacity may be limited -- first come, first served -- but we will try to let everyone who wants to try to come and sell their stuff. If you wish to sell, contact Allan Friedman at or use the calendar to register at]
