Trinity Park Bike Clinic

Sun, bikes, neighbors, oil, tools and smoothies–there you have the ingredients for a successful bike clinic. The neighbors of Trinity Park gathered together on a recent Saturday to get their bikes fixed and tuned up. There you found Matthew Carter, one of Clean Energy Durham’s Bicycle Transportation Trainers, willing and able to assist his neighbors. And even those who didn’t bring a bike to get fixed simply went to make a smoothie–a bike powered one at that. I believe we all agreed that the taste is so much better once you’ve had to put in a little effort.

The sun was smiling upon us, which was welcomed considering some recent bike clinics highlighted North Carolina’s weather diversity with rain, hail and tornado watch. Besides the fixed bikes now fit for the streets of Durham, my favorite part of the day was the smiling and curious children with their smoothie stained mouths playing with the bicycle tools. The day was a great scene to get them excited about cycling at an early age.
