Weekly Update: Strong Towns, Bike Summit, potentially postponing Working Bikes

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on October 18, 2022

All, Last week was a busy one. We had Strong Towns talk on Tuesday and the Illinois Bike Summit on Wednesday. Got in some good networking, heard some interesting talks/discussions, and got buzzed by two MTD buses on my bike commute there and then one car on my ride back to the Bike Center. Oh, the irony.

The cooler weather has curtailed our visitors, but we’ve had a few volunteers, too—always nice.

Grabbed some bikes from the warehouse last week and will continue to do so as I can this week. I have jury duty potentially all this week and next week, which majorly mucks up my plans for setting up with Working Bikes since I can’t plan past day-to-day. Likely will have to bump that to early November unless circumstances change.

The numbers:

Visitors: 42
Sales: $266
Memberships: 3 for $90
Tires/tubes: 3 for $20
