We are hosting FREE community bike clinics for low or no
income folks on every Tuesday in April (weather permitting) from 1:00pm -
2:30pm. We will be holding the clinics
in the park beside the Hostel in East Village at 7 Avenue x 5 Street SE. Please see attached poster. BC.pdf
We have partnered with Ridley's Cycle for this
event. A bike mechanic will be on site
and can do minor repairs and provide some free safety parts (lights and bells).
If you could please support our program by passing the
message along to any clients or friends that you know who may be interested in
using this service.
I may also be asking your agency in the next day or two
if you would be willing to put up a few posters in your buildings and around
your bike racks. It would also be
helpful if you would be willing to make an intercom announcement each Tuesday
at 1:00pm to remind clients that we are running the clinic and to bring their
bike over for a check up.
Thanks in advance for helping us to make our pathways a
safer place for people to walk and cycle.
Please feel free to call or email with any questions.
