Weekly Update - BFU status, What to Wear, Build-a-Bike

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on October 21, 2019

All, Despite the cooler weather the shop was still relatively busy all week. On Thursday or Friday we even had a waiting list.
In other news, we achieved Silver status for our Bicycle Friendly University! Congrats to all those involved.

Last Thursday night we had our What To Wear class at ARC. It went well. 3 people stopped by and we covered all there is to riding in colder weather. Thankfully the people who came already had well-equipped bikes for the muck and suck of the winter elements so it was mostly talking details of clothing choice and how much salt/snow/ice can impair the function of your bike. Fun times!
Also of note was our 3(!) Build-a-Bikes completed last week, two of which were done on Thursday. When that program works, it is empowering like none other. Unfortunately, it’s a big hill to climb.

Elsewhere, I’ve been having Staff and volunteers count our used and new parts to compile a master list of inventory. It’s tedious but important to be able to figure how much stuff we’ll be moving the new CBC.

Thanks to Todd for grabbing scrap over the weekend.

This week we’ll continue to purge and pare down our inventory, build bikes, and keep plugging away at prep for our move.

The numbers:

Visitors: 96
Sales: $616.25
Memberships: 8 for $240
Bikes (refurb): 0
Bikes (B-a-B):  3 for $266
Tires/tubes: 17 for $76
