Bicycle services are essential, particularly due to the pandemic's impacts on employment and healthful recreational activities. The Bicycle Tree provides equitable support to bicyclists and helps create healthy bicycle-friendly communities through activities, advocacy, and education.
Engaging with our community through social media is important for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, we've been so caught up fixing bikes and keeping operations going that we have not been taking photos or communicating much with the public.
We could use the help of someone who is able to hang out at the shop sometimes, take some photos, prepare written copy, and otherwise utilize our media to engage with our community. We have Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, an email newsletter, and website that would all benefit from increased activity.
The Social Media Manager will cooperate with the General Coordinator and other members of the Bicycle Tree to produce and share meaningful content. You won't be alone - the General Coordinator will likely continue making posts independently and others will likely contribute photos/content as well.
All of our posts are made in both Spanish and English. Knowledge of the Santa Ana community is crucial and Spanish language ability is preferred. We as an organization are committed to the principles of equity and mutual aid to create a healthier society. We're not just a bike shop. Our Social Media manager must have a good grasp of issues relating to poverty, homelessness, immigration, racism, gender, ecology, and other conditions affecting our world. Some knowledge of bikes is important as well :)
We equitably support bicyclists and create healthy bicycle-friendly communities through activities, advocacy, and education.
The Bicycle Tree is a nonprofit community bicycle center. We provide affordable resources for people who ride bikes. The COVID-19 pandemic has required that we put many of our programs on hold, please inquire regarding the status of these programs. We typically offer the following programs:
- Maintenance workshops: participants bring their bikes and learn to repair and maintain them, using the facility's tools and equipment and receiving the assistance of mostly volunteer mechanics.
- Wrench and Ride: an eight-week program open to youth ages 12-18 in which participants learn about bicycle maintenance and bike safety. Each student then selects a donated used bike that they overhaul from top to bottom. We go on a bike ride together, and they take their refurbished bike home along with a helmet, lock, and lights.
- Bicycle donations: we refurbish donated used bikes that we then give to low-income individuals in partnership with shelters and programs. A helmet, lock, and lights are included with each bicycle.
- Sales of bikes and parts: We help fund our programs through the sale of donated used bikes and parts and a limited selection of new parts and materials.
- Rides and events: We show art on our walls, hold bike rides, show bike-related movies, and engage in other events to promote bicycling within the communities we serve.

Hey, even making one post per week would be an improvement over what we've been doing. We'd hope you stick around a good while if it seems like a good fit.
