Bike to Market is an initiative to provide free or low-cost bike repairs in low-income neighborhoods where there are no local bike shops. The program is delivered by the Boston Cyclists Union as a way to serve the community, get to know the neighborhoods, and introduce their mission across the city.
As of May 2013, 1,632 bikes have been repaired at over 80 farmer’s markets during the summer.
Additionally, attendance at the farmer’s markets helps drive BCU membership, ensuring equitable representation across all neighborhoods. More information can be found here. The Summer 2013 season has ended and we look forward to promoting the Summer 2014 schedule when it becomes available.
