R.U.B.A.R.B is an acronym that stands for Rusted Up Beyond All Recognition Bikes. Dozens of flood-damaged bikes were collected after the storm.

At R.U.B.A.R.B, volunteers teach kids the basics of bicycle mechanics, and kids can participate in the "earn a bike" program. Three days a week, this tiny shack in the Ninth Ward is full of kids building bikes, painting murals, playing tag and hanging out.
