On May 1st, Bikes 4 Peace, a program put on by the Syracuse Peace Council, won the $1,000 DISHES grant. Thanks to a rocking group of volunteers, Bikes 4 Peace sponsors free bike repair clinics for kids throughout the city of Syracuse.
The next bike assessment is scheduled for Thursday, 7/14 at 6 pm, SUNY EOC (100 New St., 2nd floor, Room 238).
The next repair clinic is slated for Saturday, 7/16. Details still to come about where that clinic will be held.
For more updates, and to check out what Bikes 4 Peace has planned for the rest of the summer, check out the group's Meetup site. There are some terrific resources on the site for cycling in Syracuse. Now that the city has announced its "complete streets" initiative, there's never been a better time to take up two wheels.
