A Busy Weekend
This weekend marks the kickoff for our Safe and Smart Cyclist Program!!!
FCW was awarded a grant by the United Way to provide cycling safety & bike maintenance courses this summer. Classes will be free for
Franklinton & Hilltop residents and minimally priced for all others ($15 per course or $40 for all four). 4 courses will be offered which will repeat once a month, June through September (and possibly October)
Here is this month’s Schedule:
June 18, 9-10:30am = Basic Bicycle Maintenance (workshop)
June 18, 10:30am-12pm = Roadside Repair (workshop)
June 25, 9-10:30am = Rules of the Road (classrooom)
June 25, 10:30am-12pm = Traffic Skills (on-road)
The first 25 Franklinton or
Hilltop residents who complete all 4 sessions will receive free safety equipment
for their bicycle including a set of bike lights, a safety vest, a helmet, and a
bell. All others who complete all four courses will receive a 25% discount off
these safety accessories.
Open Shop will also be held this saturday as always from 1-5pm.
Sunday June 19th 1:00pm-4:00pm
SUDS is an all things bicycle related swap meet and grill out. This Father’s
Day, show your dad you care by clearing out his basement of all the bicycle
parts and accessories he hasn’t used since 1999 and invite him along to the swap
meet as well. Most likely, he’ll find a new pair of fenders that he simply must
have, and you’ll probably find something cool too.
Nothing to sell? No problem. Stop down, browse the tables, and grab a burger and soda while your at it. What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than trading or buying bike gear and eating grilled meat (we’ll have vegetarian options too)!
Tables are $10 and space is limited so reserve yours as soon as possible. For more
information, call Jonathan of FCW at 614-315-9315 or email him at
