The Mountain View library is celebrating National Bike Month in a big way, hosting a series of events for bicyclists.
The events start this Saturday, May 3 with an urban bike skills class which aims to "empower adults and teens to feel safe and confident riding a bike anywhere." That's followed by the ribbon cutting for the new free bike repair station out front of the library with a demonstration and repair advice on May 8 and a workshop with the police on how to keep your bike from being stolen on May 15. A giveaway of book bags on Bike to Shop day to the first 50 people with library cards and bike helmets on May 17, and a second class on bike riding skills is set for May 18.
For the entire month of May a collection of bicycle-related books will be on display on the second floor of the library at 585 Franklin St.
