Taught bike fundamentals (hand signals, wear a helmet, don't wear baggy/'regular' pants) and how to fix a flat, align and adjust brakes, seats, and put chains back on/take tires off. very productive day. started with five non-working bikes, ended with five working and pumped up bikes! Also went on a little ride in a park which required a bit of a drive to get to but was fun.

I'm too tired to write more, as i also took the bikes out to Valley Teen Ranch today, a local group home i used to work at and the kids there LOVED the bikes. i took one kid out twice and he would have gone again but his parents came to visit for the afternoon.

it's great to see new kids and awesome attitudes coming together with great volunteers and solid, life-changing principles of academics and athleticism. This, is Tri Season!
