Where Mid-City Market Patio (right by Felipe's) 401 N Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119, United States


In March, Mid-City Market installed a new bicycle repair station along the Lafitte Greenway. We asked if we should hold a bicycle repair workshop to teach you how to use it, and your answer on Facebook was a resounding yes!

On May 30th, we're teaming up with Bike Easy to hold a Bicycle Repair Workshop & Lafitte Street Group Ride.

This hour and a half workshop will be held outside on the patio at Mid-City Market. We will cover the basics of bike maintenance. Participants will leave with an expanded knowledge of how to diagnose problems on their bikes. Our focus will be on the most common problems encountered by bike commuters and easy ways to fix them. 

Open to all experience levels, we will work in groups to practice hands-on maintenance. We'll also have a short discussion of commuting basics, and will be happy to answer questions about bike fit, equipment, and rules of the road.

After the workshop, Friends of Lafitte Corridor will lead a group bike ride on Lafitte Street from Mid-City down to the French Quarter and back. Riding right alongside the Lafitte Greenway (still under construction) we'll make pit-stops to check out the construction progress. Bring your bike and join us!

11:00-12:30 - Bicycle Repair Workshop

12:30-1:30 - Lafitte Street Ride - End at Mid-City Market with plenty of lunch options available in the neighborhood.
