Weekly Update - Bike to Work Day, Bike Rodeo, etc.

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on May 6, 2019

All, What a week! Last week (and weekend) was a TBP meeting, Bike To Work Day, the Bike Rodeo, and picking up donations from the Community Bike Sale. Lots of extracurricular activity! All of the events went well but not amazingly well. Attendance was on the low side for BTWD and BR but the weather is a major culprit there.

Since 2pm on Friday we’ve gotten (rough count) 20 bike donations, so we’re pretty inundated right now. With bad weather in the forecast and the busyness of finals for most students, we’ll be able to process the donations this week—hopefully.

Last Friday was the last Fix-a-Flat class and we had our first attendee! Maria and Jacob taught the course well and the gentleman seemed happy to have come. Also on Friday the student staff hosted an impromptu Friday ride of sorts for one of our graduating staffers. This upcoming Friday will be the last official one for the season.

I’ll be out of town Thursday and Friday so Chris will open and run the shop in my absence.

The numbers:

Visitors: 73
Sales: $750.20
Bikes (refurb): 2 for $295
Memberships: 7 for $210
Tire/tubes: 9 for $64
