RUBARB Needs a Few Good Hands

RUBARB is an acronym for Rusted Up Beyond All Recognition Bikes. The New Orleans collective works to put old and flood-damaged bikes in the hands of people who need them.

The RUBARB crew can use a few good hands this fall to help work on bikes and/or with youth. You don’t necessarily need to be a bike mechanic (although it would help), just someone with a creative mind, patience, ability to be flexible and enjoy working with youth. They especially want someone to do special projects and activities.
