Mike Macintosh Memorial Ride

Kickstand’s volunteers and friends will ride on January 26 in memory of Mike MacIntosh’s tragic cycling death in North Vancouver on January 27, 2019. Mike (1963–2019) was a North Vancouver resident, cycling commuter, SFU librarian and avid Kickstand volunteer.

The ride will start at the Kickstand at 12pm and end at 132 Esplanade West in North Vancouver around 3pm where we will be installing a bike dedicated to Mike. All are welcome to join the ride. Meet us at Kickstand before the ride starts, or join along the route posted below.

Moving BBQ

We’re moving, and we’re going to BBQ about it. Come join us for the last event in our bike shop as we now know it. As of October we will start moving all our wrenches, forks, spoons, and allen keys over to Kickstand’s new home at 1187 Parker St.

Before we go, we would love to have you join us Sunday, Sept 22 to share food and help us get rid of some of our stuff. We can’t carry every pedal over there, so we’re having a big blow out sale Sept 22-27. Hope to see you there.

Kickstand Holiday Fundraiser Flea

Do you want to buy bikes, bike parts, or other cool locally made stuff in time for the holidays?

Kickstand, your local non-profit, volunteer-run community bike shop, is holding its holiday fundraiser on December 8th! It’s a daylong holiday market for local independent makers, vendors and bike stuff hoarders to connect with the community and sell their stuff.

There’ll also be food and drink offerings, entertainment, and a RAFFLE with some rad prizes. More info coming soon.

***and we’re looking for local independent vendors!***

Want to make some holiday cash from that overflowing parts bin? Do you make cool stuff (bike or non-bike related) and want to promote and sell it to the East Van community? Got too many bikes (lol) and looking to shift a couple?

Fill in a vendor application form if you want to get involved. Group applications are very welcome. Prices for tables are:

$15 for 1/2 table
$25 for a full table
$5 per bike (no table required)

Proceeds from table fees help keep Kickstand open and allow us to continue providing our services and programs to the community.

Vendor applications close on November 2nd.
