Good Read: WRENCHing for the cycle

The WRENCH is a fabulous non-profit that provides programming, education and resources for cyclists and enthusiasts of all skill levels.

ANDREW RYAN / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS Lynn Scott, 58, poses for a portrait behind her home on July 27, 2018. Scott is a volunteer bike mechanic at The Wrench.

Volunteers are incredibly important at the WRENCH, co-ordinator Sarah Thiessen says.

“We would never be able to do half the programming that we’re able to provide to the public without the volunteers. They really help create the inviting community that we have.”

WRENCH needs more helpers. Anyone interested is invited to attend an orientation happening Saturday, Aug. 4, at 1 p.m., or email Thiessen at [email protected] There are a variety of different volunteer positions available for people of all skill levels, including those who have no experience with bicycles.

“We really try to be as welcoming as possible to everyone, and certainly encourage folks who have never used a tool before to come and try it out,” Thiessen says. “It’s a great place to learn.”
