Bicycle 101 - repair, riding, resources and potluck

Wednesday, March 22, 2023 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Bradley Street Bicycle Co-op

The Bradley Street Bicycle Co-op is a community bike shop working towards an equitable New Haven by getting people on bikes.

CT Rides

At CTrides, a service of the Connecticut Department of Transportation, we help Connecticut employers and employees seamlessly reap the financial, environmental, and productivity benefits of reducing single-rider commuting. By promoting public transit, teleworking, and carpooling, we can help cut down on congestion, improve air quality, and make Connecticut a healthier place to live and work.

New Haven Coalition for Active Transportation

New Haven Coalition for Active Transportation (NCAT) promotes walking, biking, and all active forms of transportation as healthy, safe, and environmentally friendly.

This is a fun casual gathering of people enthusiastic or interested in learning how to better use their bike. We will have speakers, give repair tips and have a potluck. 

We encourage you ride your bike to the event!
