Free Bike Safety Check

Saturday, May 7th 1:00pm – 4:00 pm

Newton Centre Green (across from Panera Bread)

Bike Newton and Landry’s Bicycles are teaming up to make certain your bike is ready and safe for the beautiful biking season ahead. We will have mechanics on hand to check tires, brakes, gears and bike fit, making minor adjustments or repairs if necessary.  Bring your helmets as well so we can check the fit.  All bicyclists welcome.

Why Bike?

“… riding to work was nine times as beneficial than the risks posed by accidents or air pollution.”

Imagine a Newton where we could safely bike to work, to errands, and to the T, and kids could safely bike to school and after-school activities. Imagine many more people biking just for fun, like in this video by Bike Newton Steering Committee member Nate Aronow with the Nate Aronow Nextet:
