Woody Joseph

Bike Mechanic


 Woody came to New Orleans to attend Bike Bike, a conference about DIY bike repair and advocacy in the fall of 2013 after a bike tour through Mexico to Guatamala. Before the bike tour he worked in Los Angeles as a volunteer bike michanic at several bike Co-ops and worked as a bus and truck mechanic at Community Services Unlimited, a non-profit working within an urban food desert focused on growing, distributing and teaching youth about healthy food.  Woody learned about the RUBARB Bike Co-op at Bike Bike and began to volunteer at the New Orleans Bike Co-op located in the Upper 9th Ward on the corner of Tonti and Piety.  Woody jumped at the opportunity to join YEP as a bike mechanics teacher for the Trafigura Work and Learn Center Bike Works store.
