Lashine, neighbor and bike shop ambassador!
November started off pretty cold in temperatures for this time of year in New Orleans. So traffic started to slow down in the shop. But we've been getting great donations from Bayou Bicycles and other individuals to help grow our inventory. Thanks for the donations!
The final NOLA Women on Bikes workshop for 2014 was hosted at RUBARB on Nov 5th. Ending this fall's series on bike maintenance skill building, hopefully more are to come in 2015.
Also douring Fringe Fest, RUBARB's crew of adults and youth took a bike ride to the Bywater to see a puppet show called "The Garden Variety Show." Along the way they saw Mr Bailey who own's the building in which RUBARB operates. They went over the rusty rainbow at the end of Piety St and hung out in the park, and then got pizza at Pizza D's after the show! It was fun!
RUBARB went to a Pelicans game in October! About 15 youth and 10 adults watched preseason action at the New Orleans Smoothie King Arena. The Pelicans played and beat the Houston Rockets. We somehow managed to get our patented RUBARB snacks into the Arena and we enjoyed some good old NBA fun. Everyone seemed to enjoy the evening.
**Special thanks to Mr. Chris for getting us out to support the New Orleans Pelicans!
RUBARB also hosted a Scraper Bike workshop as part of Airlift's Education Workshops at the end of October. Lots of RUBARB youth and staff joined in the duct taping fun. Colorful spinning wheels were seen all over New Orleans!
Lots of good bike vibes coming from RUBARB as another summer came to an end in the Upper 9!
