Get your "Yonka" rolling again - Today

The LMT is waking up Laredo's Yonka community with a Public Service message. If you're one of those people who has a bicycle laying around gathering dust, this is your day to rescue it.

The Big River Foundation, Ciclo Mania and local riders will offer another free mountain bicycle repair clinic from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today.

The clinic will be held at the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, 1 S. Main Ave.

“Bring an old bike in need of tire, chain, spoke or other repair,” a news release states.

“We’ll pay for any parts you may need and show you how to install them free.”

Also, all are invited for an escorted ride along the Rio Grande to the Lost Lakes and Las Palmas Park.

Each ride will start as soon as the rider’s bike is fixed. The rides will continue until 8 p.m.

Those who volunteer are invited to a poolside party and barbecue following the event.

The bike repair clinic is paid for by a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Community Outdoor Outreach program.
