Community Event: Allston Rat Race

This summer, we welcomed back our friends from CommonWheels for their annual fundraiser, the Allston Rat Race. What is a Rat Race, you ask? It’s an all day bike ride around Allston and Brighton, filled with community based events and lots of fun. The day-long event ended with an after party at Garage B, filled with live music, great food, and community spirit. 

CommonWheels is a non-profit organization that offers Open Shop, a free, DIY, bike-maintenance skillshare and education program. The goal isn’t to fix your bike for you, but to help you fix your own bike and learn from the experience.  Open Shop is also a great chance to hang out with your fellow Boston cyclists, trade stories of biking adventures, and share your own knowledge. The Speedway is proud to host Open Shop throughout the year. 

Firmly rooted within the Brighton/Allston neighborhood, as well as easily accessible from the rest of Greater Boston – Garage B prides itself on being a community resource. We host maker and vintage markets, concerts, workshops, fitness classes, kids events, and so much more. Have a great idea of how your group could use this space? We want to hear it! Get in touch.
