Dec 8: Interns visit Dero!
Full Cycle’s paid bike mechanics internship is a 6-month program, divided evenly into two phases.While the majority of Phase One curriculum focuses on overhauling and refurbishing used bicycles in the classroom, a portion of the internship is devoted to advancing job skills and seeking out further career opportunities.We strive to get interns out of the classroom and take site visits at least twice per month. We reach out to organizations that are of interest to current interns.
This week, we took a trip to visit one of our Surly Masher sponsors- Dero!
One of our intern’s favorite part of the tour was seeing powder-coating in action. His biggest wish after leaving Dero is for Full Cycle to start powder-coating our frames. Maybe one day we will be able to fund our own on site powder-coating station.
We finished the tour exploring the office and met the rest of the Dero crew. We all fell in love with the bike-friendly amenities Dero provides for their employees that ride to work. No wonder they received Platinum status from the League of American Bicyclists!
Bri Whitcraft, Director of Marketing, gave us the grand tour. Thank you, Bri!
Look what we found on the bulletin board in the office! Thank you, Dero, for your support of Surly Masher. We look forward to riding Surly bikes around the (hopefully snowy) demo course with you.
