Safe Routes to School Bike Repair Party
February 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
955 2nd St SE
Charlottesville, VA 22902
Just like we did last year about this time, join us for a a winter bike safety check for the City of Charlottesville Safe Routes to School
program. The city actually owns 85 bikes that need basic safety checks (tires, lube chains, brake adjust, etc) to utilize for bicycle safety programming at local schools. How cool is that?
Here’s where we come in. Those bikes need minor tender loving care to get ready for the spring school programming. So, we’re gonna have a huge party at Three Notch’d Brewing Company’s heated tent on February 16, at IX to check over those bikes and have a beer to celebrate. There is a better than average chance that Three Notched is sponsoring this as well with some beer for the first handful of volunteers, and they are also contributing $1 for every beer sold. (still working on the details of that)
Mark your calendar for Feb 16, and come contribute to a great program that gets more kids out of cars and onto bicycles!!! Here are the specifics:
Where: Three Notch’d Brewing Company at IX (the heated tent outside)
When: Friday Febuary 16th 5-9pm
What: Safety checking about 85 kids bikes! Most of the bikes are 20″ single speed with coaster brake and hand brake. Some have gears.
How: Tools and work stands are needed! Please bring your basic tool kit and work stand if you have one. Spare parts, tubes, etc will be there.
