'Battle of the Bikes' benefits local children
This evening, Dec. 7, Bike Walk Savannah (Formerly Savannah Bicycle Campaign) hosts Battle of the Bikes 4.
They describe it as "a competition in which bicycle mechanics compete in feats of skill (and silliness) in support of the annual Holiday Bike Drive, which provides bicycles to deserving children selected by Blessings in a Bookbag."
Contestants will prove their mechanical prowess and be required to participate in fun challenges to win the battle. The Prowl food truck and a selection of beers from Service Brewing Company will be available for purchase.
The event happens Friday night, 6-9 p.m., at PERC Coffee Roasters, 802 E Broad St, Savannah
Mechanics from Perry Rubber Bike Shop, Trek Bicycle Store, New Standard Cycles and more will square off in the competition. Mahogany Bowers of Blessings in a Bookbag will serve as emcee and play-by-play commentator.
Bike Walk Savannah (formerly the Savannah Bicycle Campaign) is a non-profit membership organization working to redefine our city as a place for people — no matter their mode of transportation.
The fifth Annual Holiday Bike Drive is organized in conjunction with Blessings in a Book Bag. After volunteers recondition donated bicycles, they are given to deserving children.
Bike Walk Savannah says "the Battle of the Bikes is a fun way to recognize the volunteers and local bike shops that support the effort each year."
