“Cool and Green” Bike Ideas

bike2Bring your folding bikes, electric bikes, cargo carriers, bad weather gear, etc.—anything you’ve rigged up or purchased to make you bike more useful for getting you and your stuff where you need to go!   Show what you’ve got and/or just ask questions—we’ll learn together on the road to more sustainable transport.  Meet on the grounds outside the Northside Community Center.
