October 17th, Oval Park
Watts Hospital-Hillandale volunteers offered up their Sunday afternoon to pump, lube, and tune-up their neighbors’ bikes to keep them moving pollution free. Twenty people brought their bikes to get their neighbors’ help and advice. Many of them left knowing how to adjust their brakes, fix a flat, and oil their chain. One of the young participants even got her training wheels taken off and went for her first spin on just two wheels. Thanks to the beautiful day, neighbors hung around to enjoy the bike-blended smoothies and discuss the best bicycle routes while looking over Durham’s excellent new bicycle map.
