11:00-12:30 - Bicycle Repair Workshop
12:30-1:30 - Lafitte Street Ride
In March, Mid-City Market installed a new bicycle repair station along the Lafitte Greenway. We asked if we should hold a bicycle repair workshop to teach you how to use it, and your answer on Facebook was a resounding yes!
On April 18th, Friends of Lafitte Corridor and Bike Easy are teaming up to hold a Bicycle Repair Workshop & Lafitte Street Ride to end NOLA Bike to Work Week on a high note!
This free 1 hour 30 minutes workshop will be held outside on the patio at Mid-City Market. We will cover the basics of bike maintenance. Participants will leave with an expanded knowledge of how to diagnose problems on their bikes. Our focus will be on the most common problems encountered by bike commuters and easy ways to fix them.
Open to all experience levels, we will work in groups to practice hands-on maintenance. We'll also have a short discussion of commuting basics, and will be happy to answer questions about bike fit, equipment, and rules of the road.
After the workshop, Friends of Lafitte Corridor will lead a group bike ride on Lafitte Street from Mid-City down to the French Quarter and back. Riding right alongside the Lafitte Greenway (opening this summer) we'll make pit-stops to check out the construction progress. Bring your bike and join us!
