(Feb. 26, 2020) The final Fix-It Fair of the season is occurring on Saturday, Feb. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Floyd Light Middle School, 10800 SE Washington St. As the weather gets nicer and the days get longer, there are more opportunities to walk, bike, and roll. Make sure that you’re prepared to take full advantage of the outdoors and leap into spring with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).
Fix-It Fairs, hosted by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, are all about connecting Portlanders with the free resources that are available within the community. Professional childcare and lunch will be available free of charge.
At 11 a.m., PBOT will host a class on All-season Bicycling and Bike Maintenance for Wet Weather. In this session, you’ll learn how to stay dry, comfortable, and safe on a bike throughout the year. There will also be a five minute tune-up station where you can learn how to put air in bike tires and other skills to keep your bike well-maintained.
Have a bike in need of repair? From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Bikes 4 Humanity will offer free bike repair with the Repair Café. Repair Cafés are a volunteer effort where you can learn more about how to fix your items, from bikes to socks to toasters and more.
Stay visible with retro-reflective stickers
Be sure to Bling Your Thing at PBOT’s Winter Travel One-Stop Shop during the Fix-It Fair. There will be free reflective stickers that you can use to make yourself more visible. You can apply them to strollers, backpacks, bikes, walkers, and outerwear, among other things. Be sure to stop by the photobooth to get a picture with your new reflective sticker!
