Third Annual RE-Bike!
Back by popular demand, Sustainable Skaneateles’ “Re-Bike” event will return for the third year to the Austin Park Pavilion on Saturday June 4, 2016, from 9 am to 1 pm. This family-oriented event will again feature person-to-person bicycle sales or swaps, and a Bike Rodeo for kids in grades 1 through 5.
“Our Re-Bike has become an annual event now,” says event organizer and cycling enthusiast Dave Middleton. “We hope to see many new families and individuals, as well as returning 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 Arena.”
Anyone who has a bicycle they no longer use — whether adult or kid-size– is encouraged to bring that equipment to Austin Park Pavilion 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.
There will also be a Rules-of-the-Road Review and a Bike Rodeo for kids in grades 1-5 starting at 10 am. Children must have their own bikes and helmets to participate in the Rodeo. At the end of the event, any bikes that are no longer wanted may be donated to become part of the CNY Family Bike Giveaway at Christmastime.
