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!
