ICECycles free bike workshop a success

Jono fixing a bike at the workshop

The ninth Inner City East Cycles (ICECycles) free bike maintenance workshop went very well on Saturday 21 July at Delta Community house. The team of volunteers repaired 57 bikes and gave away 17 bikes to appreciative attendees, bringing the total number of repairs to over 300, and 150 bikes given away.  There is a story in the Press about the day and Radio New Zealand  did some interviews so will keep you updated on when that will be available. The number of old bikes waiting to be restored is increasing rather than decreasing though, so any more volunteers to help fix them up (and get some mechanic training along the way) would be very welcome. We are hoping to do a batch of kids bikes to give away before Christmas. Contact steve@cycletrailers.co.nz
