Kids' Bike Swap: renewed smiles

Bike Works' 15th annual Bike Swap benefits the local community and the environment!

Bike Works, Columbia City’s nonprofit bike shop and youth bicycle education organization, will hold its 15th annual Kids' Bike Swap on Saturday, May 7, 2011, from 10 am - 4 pm at Genesee Playfield (43rd Ave S and S Genesee St). This annual event is an opportunity for families to trade in a bike their child has outgrown for a larger bike — just in time for the summer riding season.

The Kids' Bike Swap helps to facilitate the flow of affordable bicycles within the community and keeps fully functional bikes out of our local landfills. This year, Bike Works has overhauled over 145 kids' bikes to kick-off the swap!

local author Garth Stein at RVCC April 20

Next up in our popular From Reel to Real live event series is an evening with author Garth Stein who will be reading from his novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain and talking about life as a New York times best selling author.

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life… as only a dog could tell it.

Joining Garth will be the Cinema's own Paul Doyle, reading from his novel Nioka, Bride of Bigfoot, one woman's eco-adventure set in the Pacific NW rainforest.
