Bike Fix-It Bonanza

What is one of the most common reasons people don’t ride their bikes? Their bikes need repairs! We’re aiming to solve that problem by taking bike maintenance to neighborhoods. This spring we’re debuting our first ever Bike Fix-It Bonanza which will do exactly that. We’re partnering with bike shops, mobile mechanics, neighborhood partners, CSU and others to to a bike maintenance BLITZ! We're aiming to provide tune-ups for 150 people in 3 hours and have a blast while doing it. More information about station locations coming soon! Check www.fcgov.com/bicycling for updates.
