In celebration of Levi's new 511 Commuter line, designed with high-performance, bike-friendly flair for commuting cyclists, the Levi's and Urban Outfitters Bike Shop arrives in San Francisco today on its nationwide tour! The free public event will feature bike tuning with an expert mechanic, customized Levi's Commuter tailoring, a DIY bike bag workshop, bicycle food carts, a human-powered amusement ride, a commuter obstacle course, Goldsprint racing, and SF-based Heavy Petal Cyclecide Bike Rodeo, a bicycle club of "alter-bike mechanics, mariachi-punk musicians, and psychotic clowns who love bikes, beer, and building stuff."
Bike Shop's tuning center will offer bike maintenance advice, replace bike pads, rewrap handlebars, add reflectors, inflate tires, and fix flats. Professional tailors will be applying reflective straps to cycling gear, making repairs to biking apparel, and giving away totes to carry cycling gear. Other freebies include bike bells, custom water bottles, bottle holders, and limited-edition, artist-designed patches.
The event takes place at Levi's Plaza (1155 Battery St.) from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Cycle yourself over there and park your wheels with the bike valet!
