Mobile Bike Clinic at People St. Plaza April 19th

Our next Mobile Bike Clinic is coming up! Here are the details:

Sunday April 19th

12 – 3pm

@ People St. Plaza on Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood

Mobile Bike Clinic People StWhat is a Mobile DIY Bike Repair Clinic?

Basically we set up a bike repair stand and provide tools to help you fix a flat, adjust your brakes, fix your gears, or whatever is wrong with your bike.  Our goal is to support you in fixing your own bike – whether you’ve done that before or not.  We will help you figure out what the problem is and walk you through the process of fixing it so that you leave not only with a working bike but also with new knowledge and skills.  $5 per hour donation for stand time but no one turned away for lack of funds.

Highlights from the Pizza Ride and CiclaValley!

Thanks to everyone who came to our Pizza ride yesterday and who stopped by our Free bike repair booth at CicLAvia last week!  We had a great time and hope you did too!  Here are some highlights.  For more pictures follow us on Instagram @lavalleybikery

Go check out Reseda blvd. between Plummer and Parthenia on your bike this weekend – it’s scheduled for a significant upgrade as part of Mayor Garcetti’s Great Streets Initiative.  The existing bike lanes will be replaced with protected bike lanes, also called cycle tracks.  The street will be resurfaced to reflect the changes between now and April 14th, culminating with a walking tour of Reseda Blvd. just before Garcetti’s State of the City address at the Valley Performing Arts Center at CSUN.  More details at Streetsblog.
