The Omaha Bicycle Co. in Benson is hosting a Patching and Polka Party on Thursday to benefit the Community Bike Project.
Cyclists are invited to bring their old inner tire tubes to the bike repair and coffee shop, near Maple Street and 60th Avenue. There will be patch kits to fix the tubes, which will then be donated to the Community Bike Project.
The Community Bike Project, near 33rd and California Streets, provides tools, materials and guidance to those exploring cycling, among other things.
The Last Ditch Polka Band will play at the benefit, and there will also be food and a raffle. It starts at 7:30 p.m.
For more information, call the Omaha Bicycle Co. at 402-315-9900.
