So many families come to this neighborhood event. They come for the music, bouncy castle, free games and bicycle tune ups, and this year families also came for free bicycle helmets and a Kidical Mass bike ride. Mostly neighbors come because WC Neighbor Days brings the community together for a fun celebration. P2P loves participating in this event. We serviced 22 bicycles, nearly all of them kid’s bikes.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 years since we first offered free bicycle tune ups at Neighbor Days. And it’s been nearly 4 years since we received support from New Belgium Brewing. Funding from a $2,300 grant that NB funded in June 2009 provided the ability for P2P to purchase cargo bike trailers and tools to pedal-power our tune-ups. Three Burley flatbed cargo trailers get hauled to events. We try to pack everything needed on these trailers. They take a good beating and are still going strong!
