We have a packed month full of presentations, activities, and workshops related to bicycling. From storytimes, to author talks, to hands-on clinics where you can learn how to fix or modify your bike, there's something for everyone!
Bring your bikes and enjoy family storytime outside at our Martin Luther King, Jr. Branch (6833 International Boulevard) at 2:00pm. Songs, rhymes, and books for all ages. The Oakland Public Library mobile bike trailer will be here too!
In this 1 hour workshop, learn the basics of bicycle mechanics, including how to fix a flat, adjust brakes and gears, and how to keep your bike clean and running smooth.
Cycles of Change is gratefully accepting donations of complete, working, and almost working bicycles and usable bike parts. These bikes will be fixed up and returned to the community through school-based bicycle education, job training, and community earn-a-bike programs.
Decorate and personalize your ride with Tyrone "Baybe Champ," the Scraper Bike King! Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring along any tinfoil, colorful cardboard, candy wrappers, and paint that match your frame. We'll have plenty of duct tape on hand in various colors.
Could you ride your bicycle across America? Michael Woods did — and he wasn't even in great shape when he started. Michael will talk about riding 4,250 miles in 55 days last year to his new home in the Bay Area from his old home in Boston.
Celebrate Asian & Pacific Islanders Heritage Month: Watch and listen to Kamishibai stories on a Japanese-style box-theater on the back of a bicycle, while you nibble on Japanese treats.
