Design a Bike Workshop - Los Altos

Want a fun summer project? Build your own bike! Instructor Tom Kabat has built a dozen bikes and can teach you about design, style, ergonomics, materials and the tools you will need (check out his website woodenbikes.com). 

Bring out your inner MacGyver and at the end of the summer we will get together, share stories, celebrate our efforts and ride our new bikes.

Sponsored by our friends at the Los Altos History Museum and GreenTown Los Altos.

    Great presentation on custom bike ideas and methods to build them out of whatever. Plus the exhibit was very cool.

    Attendees can bring cardboard, straight sticks (like yardsticks) and large paper for making a 2d life size body- double for use in the design process.

    Hi Richard, Yep, I've taught at TechShop. I think there could be interesting synergy between Tech Shop and Sierra Club.

    Sounds fun! Are you guys familiar with TechShop? I have seen a growing interest in 'making' recently in the Sierra Club. Perhaps there is potential for a strong relationship there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
