North Park Thrift Store Bike Tour

Please join me in a leisurely community bike ride as part of the 2nd annual There Goes the Neighborhood event in North Park, Saturday June 2nd from 2-4pm.

Set as a pub crawl type/ open participation invitation, the ride will take place over a couple hours and span roughly 3 miles within a few blocks of University ave, stopping at a variety of local thrift stores where we can scrounge for some used goods!

Meet at Stuff N Thangs Thrift store (3771 30th street, next to Saguaros) at 2pm with your
bike/ scooter/ moped/ unicycle or wheeled object of your choice. The tour will end at Art Produce on University between 4 and 4:30p.

If you would like to participate in a shared collaboration of documentation for the weekend, including a zine making workshop on Sunday, bring along a camera.

This event is open to people of all ages, and is free. The more the merrier so bring a buddy.
