Bike Bike

I only stayed for the first day of the conference, but Bike Bike seemed to be going well. I gave a presentation on Safe Routes to School...but all people wanted to know about was how we run Wheels for Winners.

There was a fellow there...I think from Bickas in Arizona...and he was saying that they run 8 week mechanics classes that they charge $80 for...all ages. I think each session was 2 hours long and had two instuctors. During the 8 weeks each participant rebuilds a bike for their Earn a Bike program....and at the end of the class they can pick a bike to rebuild for themselves. It was an interesting idea for future ways to generate income.

There were about 80 attendees at the conference.
