Saturday: PS 261 Bike Swap & Rodeo
If you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids this Saturday, come to PS 261 in Boerum Hill on Saturday for the second annual Bike Swap and Rodeo. It’s a great event and your chance score a cheap kid’s bike, donate an old bike, learn to ride, or just have fun. I went last year and really enjoyed seeing so many kids riding around in a really safe space.
- Bring an old kid’s bike and get a new one from the bikes available for $15.
- If you don’t have an old bike to donate, you can still purchase a bike for $25.
- Bike New York trainers will be on hand to teach kids to ride for free. (Advanced registration required. See BikeNewYork.org for details.)
- Bike New York will also offer bike skills clinics to teach basic and advanced skills for riding.
Mechanics from Recycle-A-Bicycle will be on hand to make sure all bikes are tuned up and in good, working order. Volunteers are needed, so if you can help out or if you want more information, download this PDF about the event.
I went last year and it was a ton of fun. Even if you don’t have kids, it’s worth swinging by just to check out the extreme cuteness rolling around the schoolyard.
