Pedalista! 2021— Saturday October 30th here's the flyer from 2017
The Bike Works, Silver City’s nonprofit community bike shop, is back with the 9th annual Pedalista!, a family fun event that focuses on the fun and joy of bicycling. On Saturday, October 30th, 2021 from 11am-4pm, Gough Park will be full of all-ages games and activities utilizing bike parts. This fundraiser supports the year-round programs of The Bike Works. A raffle ticket for a chance to win a bike is included with admission. The event also marks The Bike Works’ 13 year anniversary of operating a community bicycle workshop in Silver City: at the Recreation Center Annex on 10th St. and now at our new Downtown location at 914 N. Pope St. Activities and games include the mini-bike race, the paperboy challenge, the rim roll, the human slingshot, a scavenger hunt, the teeter totter, human wheelbarrows, pedal go-karts, plus much more.
Our goal for this event is simply to have a great time in the park, celebrating the bicycle and all it offers us; physically, socially, financially, and environmentally. We add to the energy generated by The Tour of the Gila Stage Race, but bring out a whole different aspect of bike riding.
The Bike Works is a community supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to make bicycles accessible to everyone. Operating a community bicycle workshop, The Bike Works staff teaches bike mechanics through a hands-on learning experience while bringing donated bicycles back to life. Programs include the Earn-A-Bike Program, Weekly Guided Bike Rides, the DIY Repair Workshop, Affordable Quality Reconditioned Bikes for Sale, and a new Recycled Bike Art & Utility Program. Programs are on a sliding scale donation basis and open to the public. Donations are necessary to keep us rolling!
