Brampton BikeWrx pop-up Café outdoor events as we emerge from COVID-19.
BikeBrampton in partnership with City of Brampton is pleased to host pop-up tent events for promoting trail/bike lane etiquette. Where possible, we will do minor bike repairs. We will install Region of Peel bells while supplies last, once a skill testing question is answered. Bring your mask for repair service.

Somerset Drive Public School BikeWrx Pop-up Cafe – Jul 21st
BikeBrampton brought our BikeWrx Pop-up Cafe to a week night to catch a different group cycling along Etobicoke Creek Trail after dinner. 52 signed in for minor bike repairs by Gerald and Peter, Brampton route maps and installation of Region of Peel free bells. After a bit of a slow start at 6pm, the final hour was very busy!
Duggan Park BikeWrx Pop-up Cafe – Jul 12th
BikeBrampton welcomed 58+ cyclists to “ring their bell” for good path etiquette on Saturday morning. Those without a bell had one installed. Peter and Gerald worked full-out for 2 hours on minor bike repairs. Everyone complied with hand sanitization and our requests for physical distancing. Councillor Santos stopped by to survey the event! This was a perfect location along the Etobicoke Creek Trail at the new Vodden Street bike lanes.
The Journey, Ardglen BikeWrx Pop-up Cafe – Jun 27th
Kevin from The Journey welcomed BikeBrampton back into their parking lot for our first outdoor event. We set up the borrowed City of Brampton tent and had invited folks to come by appointment as we tested out our new health and safety plan. Our local community bike mechanic Joe joined Peter and Gerald as the bike stands were set up 2m apart. Steve dropped by to volunteer and some of our familiar BikeBrampton members George and Yvon showed up. Several of our Pedalwise protégés made appointments. It felt wonderful to see so many friends. Even the landlord welcomed us with a box of samosas!
