Youth Bike Skill Up This Sunday, 9/16/12

In the third event as part of our “Reclaim, Rebuild, Reskill” event series is a bike skill up, with free activities for youth. This event will be at Healthy Hearts Garden in North Oakland, a beautiful site run by our co-hosts, Phat Beets Produce. Also joining in to provide their bike expertise is Cycles of Change and their BikeMobile! There will be free tune ups and repairs for youth. The BikeMobile will show how to fix flat tires, adjust brakes and gears, and replace worn out parts such as chains, seats, and tires. In case your bike is looking a little worse for the wear, there will be materials to style and decorate bikes. There will be a bike-powered smoothie maker and free food provided. All youth who attend will receive a free tire patch kit. Bring your bike to work on, there will also be demo bikes on hand for those that don’t have a bike but still want to learn bike repair. We hope to see all young bike enthusiasts there! Click here to sign up and for more event details. Also, a kid focused ride is planned with this event as the end destination, so if you want to exercise before you hone your tune up skills, click here for details.
