The first Saturday of spring break is going to be a busy one, but we wanted to make sure you knew about this great event for a good cause.
Bikes Across Borders has organized more than ten bike delivery caravans since 2001, sending over 500 bicycles to Cuba, Mexico, and Central America.At our home base in Austin, TX we operate a non-profit bike shop that repairs salvaged bikes & offers bicycle & bike trailer workshops at the Rhizome Collective. In January, the group road down to Matamoros to deliver 17 bikes and did a workshop while there.
This benefit will be on Saturday, March 14 from 8 PM to 2 AM at the Rhizome Collective, 300 Allen St, and proceeds will get more parts as well as pay the bike shop’s rent. $5 will get you in and there will be beer, food by Ararat, and music by Blue Hit, Til We’re Blue or Destroy, Buscando el Monte, Wino Vino, and the Bike Band.
