And over at the Bike Kitchen we’re fixing up donation bikes and getting them back out into the community. We are no longer requiring masks be worn at the BK. We’ve had a big uptick in folks coming in to work on their own bikes. We’re also seeing more of our bike mechanic friends coming by in their spare time to help with the backlog of donation bikes.
We’re hoping to recruit a few more lead mechanics and concierges so we can open another day or two but it won’t be long now before the Bike Kitchen is back in full swing.
