Another amazing Hinson Bike Day
We provided bicycle repair for all comers as well as free helmets and lights. We also accepted used bicycles to refurbish for our community programs or sell in our shop. Two staff mechanics from the Community Cycling Center, David C. and Rich, joined an incredible team of eight skilled volunteers to wrench on 96 bicycles in just five hours. Another crew of volunteers helped us distribute 39 sets of lights (made possible by our Get Lit program). We fitted helmets for 25 people and received 30 donated bicycles.
This is one of our favorite community events because the staff and congregation of Hinson Church do a truly expert job of getting the word out to their neighbors; we are always amazed at the number of people we are able to serve at these semi-annual events. This is our fifth bike collection and repair event and our third year partnering with the friendly, community-minded folks of Hinson Church.
