2nd Annual Back of the Yards Community BIke Day

This year’s community bike day is just around the corner. I'm excited and sad at the same time about this event, why? Last year we had over 250 families show up to this event in which 150 of them had broken bikes (this is the sad part).This event shows how important it is to have these types of resource available in the community. That’s when my work come in to place, as we help advocate for these issues.

Please join us on May 19, 2010 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Sherman Park, 1301 W. 52nd St.. There will be:

  • Age group racing
  • Activity station for kids and adults
  • Free bike fixing
  • Raffle, bike giveaways, helmets, light, locks etc.
  • Bike Education
