The Major Taylor Project’s Earn-a-Bike Program at Global finished up the week before the kids’ winter break. This allowed them to take their brand new bikes home for the holiday. Two weeks ago we tackled hubs, headsets and bottom brackets. It was a great opportunity for the kids to see what really makes a bicycle move. Unfortunately all those moving parts can also be extremely confusing, but in the end we got all the bikes fixed up and in working order.
The final class was an opportunity for everyone to add finishing touches to their bikes (and fix up any last problems). Over the 5 week session the kids learned more about bikes than they expected was possible. At the end of the day everyone went home excited for the holidays and ready to ride. See you at Chilly Hilly.
