Carrboro Bicycle Coalition Celebration & Fundraiser

From the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition's spring 2012 newsletter:

Join us at the newly-expanded Looking Glass Café at 601 W. Main St. on Friday, April 13, from 5:30 to 9:30. Ride your bike if you can! We’ll have food trucks and activities (including the bike blender for you to make your own smoothie), and we’ll once again be raffling off many great prizes from local merchants! We’ll have T-shirts to sell, and there’ll be music, too. The funds we raise will go toward several projects—see our "year in review" article to see what we've been up to so far, and what we hope to accomplish. We may have a cruiser ride after the fundraiser ends, so come prepared. Hope to see you there!
