So that’s it for our Winter season of Bike Maintenance Parties. After three months, an intrepid band of over 30 volunteers put in 170+ hours to get our Basics of Bicycling bikes back up to scratch for schools to use throughout Seattle.
Last week we had enough pizza, enough bikes and enough people. Special thanks to the stand-out all stars of my Maintenance Parties: Becca, Chris, Bent and Ralph!
