Spent most of yesterday building and repairing old bikes. People donate their old bikes to me then I do my best to fixed them up or use for parts to make other bikes. Once I have a few ride-able bikes assembled then I give them away to kids in my community that need a bike.
So far I have given away 13 bikes and one scooter this summer.
And yes every kid NEEDS a bike. It teaches them responsibility, balance, sharing, mechanics, and so much more. It encourages adventure, health, fun and escape into the unknown. Life without a bike is unthinkable to me.
