Weekly Update: Uncommonly busy; Visit from Ride Illinois; Kids Bike Giveaway

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on November 8, 2021

All, We were, again, uncommonly busy for this time of year. Beginning of this week looks bike-friendly, too (as in: warm). A couple people finished up their B-a-Bs last week. I picked up parts from Urbana so we’re well-stocked on 26” wheels, which we’d run out of, mostly—surprisingly.

We’re still ironing out dates for our Kids Bike Giveaway event and the specifics therein. Will work more on this in the coming week.

Last week I was visited by the Executive Director of Ride Illinois, the statewide bike advocacy group. It was a brief chat but a good one and nice to have our operation on their radar. Relatedly, our new space continues to impress.

The numbers:

Visitors: 39
Sales: $967
Memberships: 9 for $270
Bikes (refurb): 2 for $380
Bikes (B-a-B): 2 for $90

Tires/tubes: 10 for $56
