The third Bicycle Maintenance Day took place on the 3rd October. We had Bradley Wiggings old Trek road bike in for the brakes to be fine tuned, a challenging gear shifting problem on a second hand racer and two apprentices Matt and Sam. We got about 5 customers plus we also sold a bike and got 5 bikes donated including two childrens bikes. Matt and Sam are brothers who want to learn about bike maintenance and brought two of their own bikes along that needed attention. They managed to get the bikes going themselves and rode them away. Next time they will have their own project.
We were very busy all day and more needs to be done. People are already asking about the next one which is on the 31st October. We should do something before then perhaps rebuilding the Cannondale. We should also have a special event on the 31st.
I get the feeling that we are growing and heading in the right direction
