Bicycle Repair Workshop & Lafitte Street Ride - RESCHEDULED
We're teaming up with Friends of the Lafitte Corridor for this Workshop and Ride!
Sat, May 30, 2015
4:00 – 6:30 am
Mid-City Market – new repair station!
401 N. Carrollton
In March, Mid-City Market installed a new bicycle repair station along the Lafitte Greenway, open to the public. On April 18th, we’re teaming up with Friends of the Lafitte Corridor to hold a Bicycle Repair Workshop & Lafitte Street Group Ride to wrap up NOLA Bike to Work Week!
This hour and a half workshop will be held outside on the patio at Mid-City Market. We will cover the basics of bike maintenance, and participants will leave with an expanded knowledge of how to diagnose problems on their bikes. Our focus will be on the most common problems encountered by bike commuters and easy ways to fix them.
Open to all experience levels, we will work in groups to practice hands-on maintenance. We’ll also have a short discussion of commuting basics, and will be happy to answer questions about bike fit, equipment, and rules of the road.
After the workshop, Friends of Lafitte Corridor will lead a group bike ride on Lafitte Street from Mid-City down to the French Quarter and back. Riding right alongside the Lafitte Greenway (still under construction) we’ll make pit-stops to check out the construction progress. Bring your bike and join us!
