IRC Bike Safety Presentation

This past Thursday, SoPo continued its long running relationship with the International Rescue Committee. SoPo taught a class on bike safety and bike commuting. SoPo also distributed some bikes to the kids. The class was held at Clarkston High School. The kids were very attentive and asked some very good questions especially about riding to and from school, traffic, lights, etc. The kids also received some helmets with the bikes they received.

One of the kids in the class was Moe Kou who was a former IRC Summer intern at SoPo. I was glad he recognized me. He still knows how to fix bikes. It was great continue our work with the IRC and look forward to next Summers interns.

Bike Number 13

Bike number 13 is part of the bike donation from our Charity Bikes program to Habitat for Humanity.

The bike was donated to the shop specifically for the Charity Bikes donation to Habitat for Humanity. The bike was repainted from its original color to neon pink.But the bike wasn’t put together. It was donated in pieces with painters tape still on it. After peeling everything off and putting the bike together; all the pieces were there and it’s going to be a great neighborhood cruiser.

Thanks to the person who donated the bike, sorry I forgot who you are.

Bike Number 20

Bike number 20 is part of the bike donation from our Charity Bikes program to Habitat for Humanity.

The bike donation was set to be picked up and we were still 1 bike short of a full donation. When someone on a group ride list serve offered up their old mountain bike. It needed a new home. So I asked and got it. Everything went together so well. The bike didn’t need much, a seat here, I simplified the single chainring, basic flat pedals, and tires. Nothing major; all simple stuff and finished quickly. The bike was a perfect way to cap off the Habitat for Humanity bike donation. It’s a great bike going to a new habitat homeowner.

Thanks to the Murphy family for the bike and other awesome donations to SoPo.
