Weekly Update - Light the Night, Fix-a-Flat, Bike Maintenance 101

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on October 7, 2019

All, Much like the weather, we’ve been starting off cold and slow most days and heating up by the end. We’ve been weaving in and out of our FVF policy as I’ve felt bad turning people away when the shop is empty. But then, of course, in a blink of an eye we’re All Stands Full and members are waiting for stand time, which seems unfair.

We had Light The Night on Thursday and that was a success from what I saw of it. Two CBC staffers helped out with the event in my absence as the shop was too busy for me to be able to get away for the whole event.

We also had our Fix-a-Flat class on Friday. We had one participant. He was eager, engaged and said he’d be back for the next class, which was great.
This week we have our Bike Maintenance 101 class on Friday and I’ll be doing a training with a new hire.

Visitors: 80
Sales: $2,108
Bikes (refurb): 3 for $640
