Weekly Update

Posted by Lily Wilcock on September 18, 2018

All, this past week was comfortably slow. Sold out of bikes.


I reached out to Working Bikes about them coming down to pick up bikes but haven’t heard back yet. Will follow up this week.


I’ll also be picking up bikes from UIPD and processing them. I got a report that the pump at Altgeld/Union is on the fritz. I’ll check that out this week and see if I can get it operational without ordering any new parts. Fingers crossed.


Tuesday morning I’ll be meeting with someone from the Illini Gadget Garage. They do a very similar thing to the Bike Center, except with electronics/small appliances: teaching people how to repair them.  


Thursday is LTN 2018. We’ve got a record number of lights to install this year!


The numbers:

Visitors: 116
Sales: $1,086

Bikes (refurb): 1 for $180
Bikes (B-a-B): 2 for $97.50
Memberships: 17 for $510
Tires/tubes: 23 for $153
