Celebrating Bicycles through Music

IDEAS, NOT THEORIES is a theatrical percussion company that explores the use of unconventional instruments. In two sessions, Reynaliz Herrera and her company will perform using bicycles as their instruments.

Basic Bicycle Maintenance

Do you know how to change a tire? Fix a chain? Before heading out on your bikes, it is important to know what to do if problems arise.

Bike Safety Tips

Going out for a ride is fun, healthy and a great family activity but you want to be sure you cycle safely. Find out how to prepare for a safe ride and what rules you need to follow when you’re on two wheels.

Urban Bikeways

Massachusetts is working to boost ridership and individual communities are actively working to improve biking infrastructure. Cara Seiderman, transportation program manager for the city of Cambridge, will discuss how municipalities can improve safety and bikeability.
