On Saturday 5th October 2019, around 20 people gathered at the Oxford Terrace Baptist Church to construct 14 wooden-framed bike trailer for $50 each. Steven Muir supplied the aluminium towbars, quick release ball-joint hitch, wheel attachments, and a variety of 2nd hand wheels. A big thanks to Placemakers who supplied the 75x25mm wood, glue and screws, and Ground Effect who provided some funds to subsidise the cost of the aluminium.
The weather was cold & rainy so the new Church at Oxford Terrace was an excellent venue with generous space with an easy clean concrete floor. The church is endeavouring to encourage sustainable living where it can, so this was a great opportunity to assist. Everyone had an enjoyable time making their trailers, including a couple of longer ones for carrying kayaks. If you didn’t get the chance to come along, you can always order the wooden trailer kitset or aluminium frame trailers from firstname.lastname@example.org and make one anytime, but the cost will be a little more.
