Community Fund – The Bike Station – April Update
We’ve been getting steadily busier through April, receiving 383 donations of bikes. Soon it will be time to recruit more mechanics to boost the number of bikes we can get back onto Edinburgh’s roads and cycle paths over the summer. Refurbished bikes are sold at our workshop Tuesday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm. All come with a 3 month warranty and are as affordable as we can make them! Customers come from near and far, although the couple in the picture certainly travelled further than anyone else. After flying from Australia, they touched down in Edinburgh and made us their first port of call. Arriving on foot with all their bags they left us with bikes, pannier racks, maps and best wishes for their adventures!
Bike safety checks for some Midlothian schools are now well underway with our mechanics working hard to ensure all the children are ready to take part in their Bikeability courses.
Maintenance classes have been scheduled for the start of June – we aim to teach cyclists the basic skills they need to keep their bikes performing well and saving them money on repairs and servicing. For more info see: www.thebikestation.org.uk/eveningclasses/
