Sun May 2 14:19:45 EDT 2010
Beginning the 2010 season this Saturday, fresh food meets freshly-tuned bikes -- right in your neighborhood! Four District farmers' markets are hosting free bike repair clinics. Get your squishy tires inflated, flat ones fixed, squeaky chain lubed, sketchy brakes adjusted, and more! Don't have a bike yet? Get advice on what to buy, where to shop, and then, where to ride.
Come out to one of the markets listed for delicious shopping and service, all in one shot.
Think this is the best idea since sliced seasonal fruit? Well, after you get tuned up, you can help out, too! No repair skills? No problem. (A few basic repair skills - or more, even better.) Email the contact below at the market nearest your house. Not sure which one to pick, or just want more info? Contact Kristin (Mt. Pleasant) at wrenches at mtpfm.org.
