AUGUST 27 & SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 (INFORMATION COURTESY OF BIKE AUSTIN)
Join the Party!
Austin is world renown for it’s events, festivals and healthy lifestyle however there are many underserved communities in our great city that do not reap the benefits of such events. This is where the Ciclovia fits perfectly! Let’s bring the party to every corner of Austin and ride/ walk in the streets!
During the event we will provide bicycle safety instruction as well healthy cooking demo’s from area non-profits.
In many low-income communities throughout Austin the city has provided bike lanes while community organizations have donated hundreds of bicycles for kids and adults. Although these donations have made bicycling a viable option for hundreds of people in the shortterm, there is often little follow-up support to help residents fix common and inevitable mechanical problems. Ciclovia will empower residents in these communities with the basic safety and bike repair skills and knowledge to live an active healthy lifestyle.
Gearing up for these great Ciclovia events, we are in need of bicycle donations to give away to those who would greatly benefit from them. These bikes will be essential in instilling the amazing benefits of bicycle lifestyle to those who attend our events, and go a long way in developing a positive association with the bike community. If you would like to donate please contact Mercedes Feris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your help!
