A Spoketacular event in Bronzeville
The Bronzeville Bikes Spoketacular event last Sunday was a big success.
The event included information on bike safety, a bike tour, a bike sale for refurbished bikes, a bike donation program and an ice cream social.
The highlight of the event was watching kids get their bikes fixed at no charge at the Bronzeville Bike Box, which is a 20-foot shipping container located in a formerly vacant lot at 51st Street and the CTA Green Line.
Active Trans was delighted to participate in the event, which was part of Bronzeville Bikes' effort to make Bronzeville a community where bicycles are a key tool for fun, transportation and commerce.
The Bronzeville Bike Box is looking for bike donations and helping hands.
It's open Friday, 2 p.m.– 7 p.m.; Saturday, 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.; and Sunday, 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Check out the Bronzeville Bikes website for info about other events, including regular bike rides leaving from the bike box.
