We LOVE Playa Bike Repair. Here's why:


Playa Bike Repair is a Burning Man Service Camp

1. We repair over 4,000 bikes every burn (Free!)

2. We rent Bikes. Rentals fund repairs.

3. We recycle. Donated bikes are later used for parts.

 

Location 

Historically we've been at 9/B. Placement typically announces camp locations in June.
 

Philosophy

We strive to create a caring, nurturing environment for people needing bike repair, and a comfortable, friendly place for mechanics.

 

Roles

Many of us are mechanics, but we have roles for non-mechanics too! (Bar, bike distribution, DJ, greeter, kitchen, setup, shade, strike, etc). 

 

Kitchen

We provide two delicious meals per day, at 9:00 AM and 7:00 PM.  
We have a commercial kitchen you can use anytime.  

 

Transport

We mostly carpool, or take the bus. We don't have a lot of room, for RV's.

PBR is limited in size.  We cannot accept everyone who applies, so apply early.  We seek campmates who can collaborate, and effectively work together to co-create our shared vision.  If that sounds like you, please apply.

 

Workshifts:

Campmates work four 4-hour shifts (16 hours total) during the week.  Everyone must contribute to either set up, or strike.  Your shifts maybe the most rewarding part of your Burn.
