The Art Walk is this Saturday and we have been busy putting together bike maintenance and education for all in the Pomona Valley. We want to provide as many opportunities as possible to educate, empower and bring the community together. And the Art Walk seemed like a perfect place. Bring your bikes for tune-up and repairs, learn some bike safety tips and rules of the road and make your own spoke cards while checking out the local art galleries and eateries. We are exited to be putting this event for all of you and hope to see you all there!
Take a look at our schedule for Saturday:
Bike Maintenance and Education Presentation: 3pm-6pm Sculpture Garden 538 W. 2nd Street Pomona
Spoke Card Art: 5pm-9pm Farmers Market Thomas Plaza. DIY spoke cards at our table. We will have markers and coloring materials for you to make your own spoke card
Bike Ride: 9pm. Glam your bike up, put on x-mas lights, shine-y gear and bike bling and ride around downtown. End the night with a fun bike party!
We still need a few more volunteers for this event. Please sign up here to volunteer!
