National Night Out: Community Street Bike Kitchen

We “popped up” our Bike Kitchen in Craddock today during the national night out and helped to teach kids and adults how to fix, repair and tune their own bicycles. As a give back service to our Community we are hopeful to have more “Pop up” shops in the area so be sure to watch our facebook and twitter feeds for news of upcoming events!
