Bike Camp 2015: A Hubcap Recap
What do you get when you mix 14 enthusiastic campers, a whole city to explore by bike, bicycles to repair, and two sunny weeks of summer? Gearin’ Up Bicycles to provide mechanics education for our campers. Each camper received a bike in non-working condition. Gearin’ Up’s Zack led the campers in sessions covering everything from changing a flat tire, to re-cabling brakes and derailleurs, to adjusting limit screws (and A LOT more)! They embraced the chain grease and became wrench experts. By the end of camp everyone finished their bikes and took a successful test ride! We thoroughly enjoyed our first year of Bike Camp and are already looking forward to many more summers of WABA Bike Camp in the future! We would like to extend a big thank you to all of our community partners we visited during Bike Camp and a special shout-out/thank you/you rock to all of our Bike Camp volunteers!
