ALHAMBRA – ColoradoBoulevard.net:
The Alhambra Civic Center Library is teaming up with local partners to host a series of workshops to help cyclists to bike smart!
By News Desk
These educational and fun events for the whole family will take place at local Alhambra parks and at the Library. Registration is not required; all ages are welcome.
“Bicycling has so many benefits. It’s fun, keeps us healthy and helps reduce our carbon footprints,” said Mayor Jeff Maloney. “These workshops will help people feel more confident about hopping on their two wheels, while providing them with safety tips to share the road with motorists.”
In April and May, Cub House of San Marino will present six bike repair workshops for beginners and advanced riders. Bringing your own bicycle is recommended, but optional. In these hands-on sessions for all ages, you will learn how to:
- fix a flat tire
- grease a bike chain
