Spotted at the Beltline Bike Shop this incredible DIY bike trailer. It was originally a dolly hand truck. Half of the handle was removed and it attaches to the bike frame with a locking clip. It works!

Beltline Bike Shop Visit

image

SoPo shared some kids bikes with out friends at the Beltline Bike Shop. It was also a chance for a shop visit. This is one of their shops. Beltline Bike Shop has another shop on English Av in the Vine City neighborhood.

It’s a great program to learn about and contribute. We learned a lot from our visit to the shop. Their impact is really being felt in the neighborhood.

I also learned that skidding (sliding out the rear wheel on a power slide) is now called swerving.

Thanks Tim and Rebecca for the shop tour.

Haro 24″ bmx cruiser, think of the possibilities from cruising around the neighborhood, racing at the track, tearing up trails, and more.

Habitat for Humanity Class

A day at the shop for our partnership with Habitat for Humanity. The participants got lessons on basic bike maintenance, on road safety, and a group ride.

Thanks to Habitat for continuing this amazing partnership. Thanks to Alon’s Bakery for the sweet morning goodies. Thanks to the volunteers for coming out and making this all happen.
