A mobile bike repair cart, complete with a home mechanic stand and tools to fix your ride will show up. We also bring with us our Bikebrary, which holds free educational literature on D.I.Y. repairs and cycling in the city, free multi-tools and patch kits as supplies last, and other information about bike resources in Richmond.
