Types of Services & Activities

Bicycle Safety Check

NBW staff and youth leaders provide basic bicycle safety repair services for children, youth, and families at schools, libraries, block parties, and other events.  Participants bring their bikes to a safety station where staff will diagnose and make small adjustments to ensure that bikes are safe to ride.  *Note: Some bikes may have issues beyond basic bicycle repair.  Our staff are not able to repair all problems and we’ll let cyclists know if they need to bring their bike to a bike shop.

Bicycle Repair Demonstrations

Interested in engaging your event participants in basic repair tips that they can do in the comfort of their own home or on the side of the road?  NBW can demonstrate simple lessons such as flat repair, brake adjustment, and basic maintenance to both youth and adults.  We also provide opportunity for participants to ask questions and learn more about their bike challenges.  This option is best as a scheduled 30-minute lesson with a set audience.

Valet Bike Parking

Are you hosting an event where you expect a strong turn-out of cyclists?  NBW staff and youth provide secure bike parking for participants at your event.  Valet Bike Parking has numerous benefits, including increasing ridership to your event, decreasing bike parking traffic along fences and sidewalks, and offering event participants a safe and secure place to park their bike.  NBW can provide bike racks for the event.

Host Responsibilities

When setting up for outdoor events, we ask that you provide a space large enough to accommodate the amount of people that you expect.  For Safety services and Valet Bike Parking, we will need a space that is removed from traffic, has a nearby fence, and shade.  Additionally, our staff would appreciate having a place to use restrooms and refill drinking water.

We request 6 weeks advance notice for all events.  Please contact our This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions.
