It’s Bike Month! Is your bike ready for its spring & summer adventures (or just its everyday commute)? If not, you’re in luck – the new San Bernardino Transit Center Bike Hubitat is opening on Monday, May 9, from 12 – 6 pm!
In partnership with the Inland Empire Biking Alliance (IEBA) and San Bernardino Generation Now, Omnitrans is introducing the hubitat as a low-cost, do-it-yourself workshop where community members can learn to maintain and repair their bicycles in a convenient location.
For Monday’s grand opening event,extended hours and festivities are planned, including giveaways and a visit from community activist and coast-to-coast biker David Sylvester, whose “Hugs & High Fives” tours promoting kindness in the face of violence have drawn national acclaim. You can even be entered into a raffle for cool bike accessories!
On an ongoing basis, members of the IEBA will be on hand every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3 – 6 pm, providing tools and advice for Omnitrans customers and Transit Center visitors. The group asks for a $5 donation for tune-ups and consultation; bicycle parts typically cost under $5 as well.
Be sure to join us on the 9th – come for the information, stay for the fun!
