Safe Routes to School Bike Repair Party at Champion

You might know that the City of Charlottesville has a new Safe Routes to School program, coordinated by our own Kyle Rodland. The city actually owns about 50-60 bikes that Kyle intends to repair and utilize for bike riding safety programming at local schools.  How cool is that?

Here’s where we come in.  Those bikes need repair.  So, we’re planning a huge party at Champion Brewery on February 24 to fix those bikes and have a beer to celebrate.

Mark your calendar and come contribute to a great program that gets more kids out of cars and onto bicycles!!!  Here are the specifics:

Where: Champion (the tent outside)

WhenFriday Febuary 24th 5-9pm

What:  repairing about 50-60 kids bike for the city elementary schools. Bikes are 20″ single speed with coaster brake and hand brake. Most just need air in the tires and a safety check. 

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.
