Weekly Update: Bike Maintenance 101, Volunteer request, Cold and snow

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on February 15, 2021

All, Last Wednesday we had our first  class of the semester: Bike Maintenance 101. We had one attendee, despite the bitter cold and snow, which was great. He seemed genuinely appreciative of the BC and our mission. We were able to use his bike as a tutorial of sorts for some of the basic repairs.
We had a new-to-the-university student come in on Thursday who has a strong bike interest and background. He expressed interest in volunteering and becoming more involved—always a welcomed response!
On Friday I grabbed 4 bikes from the warehouse and we will work those up this week. The cold and snow will keep things nice and quiet here, I’m sure.


The numbers:

Visitors: 5
Sales: $262
Bike (refurb): 1 for $200
Membership: 1 for $30
Misc: $31
