Flat tires? No problem; bring your ratty bicycle to Great Raft Brewing, Shreveport, on Sat, Sept 20, noon to 5 pm, for a free re-hab
Tune-ups will be free if bicycle owners can get their needy 2-wheelers to Great Raft Brewing on Sat., says Stephen Pederson.
Volunteers from Shreveport Bossier Bike Social will be working alongside Ian Webb of River City Cycling to make "simple repairs, brakes, gears, cleaning (but no buff jobs), tire inflates, check ups and that sort of thing." It is, like, no charge.
A bump in social biking - on view across the US - seems to be happening in Shreveport. SBC Bike Social Critical Manners rides on the last Fri of the month have drawn a gang growing to 50 riders and beyond. With good biking weather ahead, local riders are dusting off their Schwinns, notes Pederson. "People will find help, advice and solidarity in biking at Great Raft on Sat. Please stop and say hello, even without your bike."
