The organization called the event the "fix 'em party" to inspire those with bike-repair knowledge and tools to come spend the day making used bikes rideable.

The event featured a barbeque and onsite bike repair, provided by members of the Homer Cycling Club and others. Six people ranging in age from 6 to 40 left with repaired bicycles, and two others are waiting on repairs but will soon be receiving bikes. Bikes Rock Homer has received 50 donated bikes since launching in February and has distributed 20.
