Community Bikes was on hand with the always popular pedal powered bike blender smoothie maker. Even Andrew Greene, University Sustainability Planner, got to enjoy a smoothie at the fair (photo by Cole Geddy)! Chris Gist from Community Bikes was also at the fair to promote bike safety. Later that evening Chris taught the first session of the "Traffic Skills 101" training course.
Heather Higgins of Bike Charlottesville, a local coalition of bike groups and community members, joined Community Bikes at the event to offer event attendees information on advocacy opportunities and safe cycling. The new kid on the block, Blue Ridge Cyclery, was also at the fair giving away water bottles and encouraging students to sign up for their mailing list. BRC opened on Millmont Street in December of last year and in addition to selling quality bikes and gear, they regularly sponsor group rides and maintenance classes.
