Last week Cambridge Bicycle was invited to an event with the MIT Transportation Department to promote cycling in the MIT community. Ben, Bill, and Bud represented the shop for community outreach. Students, staff, and faculty stopped by for air in their tires, oil for their chain, and a quick safety check to make sure their bikes were road-ready. We also were able to give away some bike maps from the City of Boston, pamphlets on bike safety and laws from the Cambridge Police, and some great general advice and tips on riding in the city and bike maintenance.
We were there for four hours and it was super busy the entire time. We got to meet a bunch of friendly people from MIT while we were there – here are a few of the people we met and helped with their bikes.
We had a ton of fun during the clinic. If you work for or attend MIT be sure to keep an eye out for the next one.
