Fix Fest 2012: free bike tuneups in time for Bike Month

Get geared up for Bike Month! Come out to

Blacksburg’s Third Annual Fix Fest

When: Saturday, April 28, 9 am – noon

Where: 110 Draper Road adjacent to the Blacksburg Farmer’s Market

Dust off your bike, pump up the tires, and lube the chain.  Spring is here!  Has your bike been sitting in the garage over the winter – or even for the last few years!  If so, it’s time to get your bike ready to ride!  Everyone can bring their bikes downtown for a *free* safety check and basic tune up.  Our local bike shops – Bike Barn and East Coasters – will be on hand with mechanics offering basic services.  (Participants that require part replacement or more involved repairs will be referred to the bike shops.)

We’ll also be taking donations of old bikes, bike parts, and tools to support the Bike Kitchen’s mission to help others get reliable, affordable, pedal-powered transportation! You can learn more about the Bike Kitchen at

**Hey! Psst! If you can’t make it to the Blacksburg Fix Fest, get yourself to the Christiansburg Fix Fest at the Farmers Market on May 12. Same deal, same times.
