HOUSTON, TX 8/23/13 Cherryhurst Bikes!, a community cycling showcase, invites local organizations, businesses, and neighbors to celebrate cycling on Saturday, 9/21/13 from 9 am to noon at Cherryhust Park  at 1700 Missouri.

What can you do on a bicycle?  Can you ride a bike to work or school, run errands with the family, or haul cargo? Would you like to learn how to use a bike in these ways and at the same time save on fuel, be healthier, and help make our air healthier, too? On Saturday, September 21, bring the whole family to Cherryhurst Park in Montrose to celebrate all that we can do on a bicycle.  All are welcome to attend, both regular bicycle riders and riders-to-be.

 

Free and open to the public, the event will begin at 9 am.  Among the events planned:

  • Bicycle “Show & Shine” (with prizes!)
  • Bike decorating for kids of all ages
  • Safety, repair, & new rider classes
  • Bike & Helmet Checks
  • Amazing cargo bikes
  • Experts to offer advice and guidance
  • New product demonstrations for city cycling

 

Enjoy free food and drink while visiting with 26+ community organizations and bike shops, and stroll (or roll!) over to the FrankenBike bicycle-themed swap meet at Anvil, at 1424 Westheimer. Bike valet service will be available.
