VCCool is launching its new initiative, BikeVentura, and with it comes reason to hop on your six-speed and brave Ventura’s city streets for a night of fundraising fun.
On Saturday, March 4, 7-10 p.m., BikeVentura will host a fundraiser at the Bell Arts Factory, 432 N. Ventura Ave. in Ventura, featuring hors d’oeuvres provided by Scratch Ventura and beer provided by Topa Topa Brewing Co., with all proceeds benefiting BikeVentura, a 501(c)3 organization.
BikeVentura offers a diverse series of programs, including one in development to give homeless individuals the skills needed to repair their own bicycles, oftentimes their only means of transportation. Coming soon: a Fillmore outpost as well.
Yvonne Adan, chairman of the board, says that all are welcome at the Ventura Bike Hub, where repairs can be had for $5 an hour along with tips and pointers on bicycle care and maintenance.
“One of the things about cycling is that you not only want to work, but you want to have fun, so we try and combine work and fun,” said Adan.
