OB1_1.jpgOperation Bicycle settled into its space and found its rhythm in December, attracting new customers, new teens, and getting back on track with our Bike Mechanics class. We were open 17 days and netted just over $5,000 in sales.  

We had a handful of new teens coming by daily to work on their BMX bikes and ride wheelies in the parking lot. They've been benefitting from the drop-in work space and have been bringing in more customers as well. Rabobank presented us with a nice check to cover the cost of our grand opening party, scheduled for Feb. 10. 

OB2_1.jpgAfter a few months off, we resumed our Bike Mechanics Earn-a-Bike class. It was our first in the new space and it went very well. We had three of the four participants show up and two finished and took home new bikes that day. We had an adult volunteer -  Richard Robinson, who happens to be a professional bike mechanic - help us. 

Overall, we've created a nice shop space that's welcoming and comfortable for all ages.  Come visit at the Grand Opening!!
