One of our core values at the shop is to help others if your able. This past week a few of our kids stopped by to repair their bikes and they had the opportunity to help out some other kids. Our first rule when kids come through the door is to take care of your own bike first then, if you’re able, help someone else. After they finished repairing their bikes there were no kids that needed help so these two began doing repairs on some small bikes that will go to foster kids. We have a local recycling center down the road from us that saves the bikes that people bring to scrap, our kids recondition them while earning points that go towards a bike or accessories for their bike. After the bikes are repaired and inspected we return the bikes to the recycler so they can donate them to the foster care organization.
