All in a day’s work: Bike repair and safety education at Sunday Parkways
The Community Cycling Center helped out at this summer’s first Sunday Parkways event in North Portland.
Early that morning, a team of enthusiastic volunteers set up bike stands, tents, and bike safety education stations in Kenton Park, one of the three parks along the route filled with neighborhood organizations, fun activities, and seriously scrumptious food carts.
Throughout the day, we provided free bike repair to over 100 community members (including the mayor!). We also offered hands-on bike safety education lessons to 50 more Sunday Parkways revelers.
We are eagerly anticipating the second Sunday Parkways in NE Portland next month, when the route will go right by our shop!
