Bike Month is Here! And boy do we have a wide variety of activities going on around town.
Starting today May 1, and each Thursday in May, Bike Habitat is conducting bicycle repair clinics. Call to make reservation.
Friday, May 9: Bike Habitat will host a Commuters Forum in the evening.
Saturday, May 10: The Bike Smith will hold their annual Safety Inspection/Bike Fit/Flat Tire Fix event in their parking lot from 10 am – 2 pm
Later that evening is Movie Night at Comma Coffee. “Off Road To Athens” will be the feature.
Though not an actual event, on Monday, May 12 Carson City Supervisor Shelly Aldean will hop on the back of my tandem (I can’t believe she said yes!) for a fun ride from her house to her office.
Another FUN event on the schedule is the “Historic District Social Ride“. Wednesday, May 14, we’ll meet at the Brewery Arts Center and Muscle Powered will guide us on a FUN, low-key ride through old town Carson City.
Friday, May 16 is Bike to Work Day. Many numerous events going on around town, including Commuter Stations, free bus service from JAC, and the grand finale raffle, where we’ll give away a KHS Urban-X commuter bike donated by LUMOS & ASSOCIATES, with help from a Bicycle Authority “Bro deal” (Thanks Dan!).
Joining us at the Firkin & Fox for the raffle will be a very special preview performance by African drum and dance group, Anouaze Beat.
I mentioned preview because one week later on Saturday, May 24 the full ensemble will be performing at the Brewery Arts Center. Don’t miss it!
And if that isn’t enough, Sunday, May 18 is the Tour of Carson. Celebrating the one year anniversary of the Bike Habitat, Denis Coyne will lead us on a fun, moderately paced, unsupported bike ride around the Capital city. WHEW!
Check our calendar for detailed descriptions of our events.
