April 27, 2013 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

Event Navigation

The bicycle is one of the most useful and energy-efficient modes of transportation on the planet. Traveling by bicycle can save you money, and is a fun way to exercise. If you currently travel or commute by bike, or would like to, a community bike program can help. Community bike programs educate participants about biking and provide do-it-yourself opportunities for bike repair. In this program, Tom Bulten, Executive Director of Oakdale Neighbors, will introduce participants to the Boston Square Community Bikes Program and other similar community programs. Learn how these programs expand transportation options, reduce the ecological footprint, improve health, develop skills, and create engaging and productive community spaces.
