    We are open on Second Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm! Stop in for a tune up and let’s ride around downtown.

    During this event we will have a condensed bike safety lesson, discuss rules of the road and go on a ride! We will be riding on the streets downtown practicing the skills discussed in the safety presentation. You will need a helmet and a working bike for the class. If you need either of these, please come to Bike Bakersfield and we will get you fixed up! We are suggesting participants to become a member of Bike Bakersfield for taking the class.
