BikeMobile will provide free tune-ups and repairs for community members at the Richmond Public Library’s West Side Branch at 135 Washington Ave. in Point Richmond on Tuesday, Sept. 6, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

This is a first come, first serve event. Space is limited to 20 people.

“Is your bike making one of those mystery sounds? Is it in your garage collecting dust because it has a flat tire – or no tire at all? The BikeMobile can fix flat tires, adjust brakes and gears, and even replace broken or worn out parts like chains, seats, and tires,” according to Library officials. “The only thing it can’t do is replace missing wheels or gears.”

While mechanics work on your bike, they’ll explain how your bike works and how to keep it running smoothly.
