Weekly Update: Bicycle Donations; Collaborations

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on April 18, 2022

All, Had some intense weather mid-week that kept folks away from visiting us. A new student staffer started this week and hit the ground running. We got two quality bikes donated last week that are in-progress and one very nice near-new bike that is already on the sales floor.

TBP prices bumped up slightly last week to no Ill effect here at CBC. In fact, the first mention of the higher prices was met with “A used tire for $8? That’s a great deal!”

On Thursday, I consulted with a student from University of Connecticut about starting a bicycle cooperative space at his school. He’d heard good things about our operations from a former TBP member. Small world, too, since I grew up 20 minutes from UConn.

This week is the Campus Transportation Advisory Committee meeting and the last week for one of my student staffers.

The numbers:
Visitors: 26
Sales: $912.50
Bikes (refurb): 1 for $180
Bikes (B-a-B): 1 for $50
Tires/tubes: 2 for $21
