2nd Annual ReBike Event, Saturday May 30

ReBike 2015

Back by popular demand, Sustainable Skaneateles’ “Re-Bike” event will return to the Allyn Arena on Saturday May 30, 2015, from 9am to 1 pm.  This family-oriented event will again feature bicycle repair workshops, person-to-person bicycle ales or swaps, and a Bike Rodeo for kids in grades 1 through 5.

“Last year’s Re-Bike was a great success,” says event organizer and cycling enthusiast Dave Middleton. “Many families found just the right replacement bike for one or more of their growing bicyclists. Everyone who shopped for new wheels– adults and kids alike– really appreciated the chance to try out the bikes by riding around inside the Allyn Arena.”

Anyone who has a bicycle they no longer use — whether adult or kid-size– is encouraged to bring that equipment to Allyn Arena on the morning of the Re-bike, where they can offer it for sale or swap on whatever terms they choose. “Obviously, the more bikes people bring to sell or swap, the better the chances that other folks will find something they want or need,” says Middleton. Bike equipment and gently-used clothing are also welcome.There is no admission fee or other charge for participating in the Re-bike.

The event will include demonstrations on bike repair, tire changing, bike sizing and adjustment, and more. There will also be a Rules-of-the-Road Review and , beginning at 11 am, a Bike Rodeo for kids in grades 1-5. Kids must have their own bikes and helmets to participate in the Rodeo. At the end of the event, any bikes are no longer wanted may be donated to become part of the CNY Family Bike Giveaway at Christmastime.
