200 Bikes Repaired at Anacostia Library: Thanks DCPL, The Bike House
It’s been a busy summer, but on the final Saturday of July the Anacostia Library hosted the final mobile bike repair clinic of the season, and we’re pleased to report over fifty bikes were repaired. That brings our season total to over 200 bikes repaired through this season’s partnership among DCPL, The Bike House, and WABA. It has been a great season of outreach and wrenching, and we want to again express our appreciation to The Bike House for providing mechanical support and DCPL for hosting and assisting with the cost of supplies. Throughout the season we were also joined by representatives of Capitol Hill Bikes, the Metropolitan Police Department, and numerous community groups. We appreciate the support of the community as we try to provide programming of this sort to encourage ridership in a part of the city lacking easy access to local bike shops and the supplies and expertise we rely on to keep rolling. Thanks to everyone who came out this season to volunteer, wrench, flyer, celebrate, and have your bike repaired.
