Bike Friendly Oak Cliff gave away 20 bikes and helmets to neighborhood kids at its paletas y bicicletas event last month.
The third-annual event, at Lake Cliff and Kidd Springs parks, included luchador performances, a family bike ride and of course, popsicles. BFOC also does park cleanup as part of the event.
The taqueria Trompo sponsored the event, donating five bikes and helmets. Other sponsors include Lockhart Smokehouse, Grand Bank of Texas, the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, Sweet 200, Neighborhood, Brass Tacks, Eno’s and Cheese and Chutney.
