>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Jack London Square | Broadway and Embarcadero, Oakland, CA
BikeShare EastBay has partnered with the Jack London Square Farmers’ Market to bring you the latest edition of BikeShare, a quarterly gathering where cyclists share ideas, skills, and stories in 10-minute presentations.
The theme for August 12, 2012, is EAT! and will feature 5 or 6 presentations ranging from how to make a DIY electrolyte recovery drink to stories of bike camping with a recycled tin can stove. Presentations begin at 11am on the patio above the farmers’ market.
BikeShare: EAT! Schedule
“It’s like a TED lecture, but for bikes”
Free Mechanic Check-ups | 10 am – 2 pm
A bike mechanic from Bay Area Bikes will be on hand to do bike safety checks and recommend any adjustments. Need something fixed? Bay Area Bikes just opened a service shop alongside their bike rental store here in Jack London Square!
Pedal Powered Ice Cream | 11 am – 1 pm
Check out Spokeland Bike Co-Op’s bike-powered ice-cream maker, sample a scoop, and learn about the non-profit’s bike education space in North Oakland. It’s unclear whether the ice cream will be for free.
Cargo Bike Test-Rides | 10 am – 2 pm
Bay Area Bikes is lending their Yuba Cargo Bike to any cyclist who needs a bigger, sturdier ride to take their groceries home. Leave your bike or a credit card, and take the Yuba for a spin, free of charge! It will also be available for test rides at the market.
Free Bike Shepherd Registration | 10 am – 2 pm
Connect your name and contact info to your bike’s serial number, decrease the chance of theft, and increase the chance of recovering your bike just in case! Registration and information provided by Bay Area Bikes.
