This looks like it was a success. One comment - I can't tell from the picture, but I hope all of the riders had helmets (it is the law for riders under 18, and highly encouraged for ALL riders).

Just to clarify, all riders wore helmets which were either donated by Facebook or by our friends at Bern.

And the fantastic designs were rendered by Studio SK (studiosk.net). The principals are Sean and Maxine Kennedy and they have been supporting us pro bono.

Thanks for inviting Local Motion's Bay Area BikeMobile to the event. Our team had a great time providing free tune ups and teaching participants about bike maintenance at the Unity Bike Ride. To sign up for a free Bike Mobile repair clinic for youth at your community center or event, please go to www.bayareabikemobile.org. We are looking for summer events to attend. This program is brought to you by Spare the Air Youth. Thanks!
