CABA and Trips for Kids Charlotte are Hosting a Youth Bicycling Clinic – And We Need Your Help!

July 30, 2012

Charlotte Bicycle RodeoCharlotte Area Bicycle Alliance is excited to partner with Trips for Kids Charlotte and local cyclists to host a youth cycling clinic and bike drive in South Charlotte’s  Mountainbrook neighborhood.  The clinic will be geared toward kids and parents to teach youth how to safely bicycle in our city for transportation and fun.

The Mountainbrook neighborhood reached out to the cycling community in an effort to give it’s young residents the skills to get around their community having fun and in style – by bike!  CABA is seeking 10 volunteers to help make this event a success.  This clinic will be held on Sunday August 26th from 2-4PM in the parking lot of the Mountainbrook Swim & Racquet Club, 3100 Mill Pond Road, Charlotte, NC 28210. We’re seeking volunteers who are 18 and over, are experienced cyclists, and mechanically inclined to assist with the clinic.

Come out and join us to help the Charlotte community learn safe cycling skills.

This is a first of a kind event for CABA that we hope to be the start of a series of cycling skill clinics.

Please contact the caba volunteer coordinator at volunteer@charlottebikes.org to sign up
