Summer is for slowing down?? Not when you’re on a bike!

Summer is for slowing down?? Not when you’re on a bike! We have been busier than ever at the shop for the past few months. As the weather has warmed up, the thought of feeling the breeze from the saddle of a bike just sounds amazing. Apparently we aren’t the only ones with that thought, as crowds have joined us every open workday to get rolling as well. We kicked off summer with another Bowl-a-thon fundraiser at Woodleaf Lanes. Riding the momentum from our first event back in January, we brought in more funds needed to keep our doors open. This is critical for us, as weekends have been a blur of activity at the shop.

We have averaged several earn-a-bikes each session, along with many individual repairs. We’ve helped unemployed adults find transportation, kids own their first bike, families work together on repairs and teens learn new skills. It has been humbling and rewarding to see our vision materialize, though not without lots of sweat along the way! We’ve thankfully welcomed some new volunteers and continue to seek anyone willing to donate their time at the shop.

Other recent community involvement for The Pedal Factory has included participation in the Rowan Health Dept. Health Fair - we set up a booth and bike obstacle course, taught bike safety and gave away helmets to kids. It was a fun morning, and kids enjoyed riding the course as always! We have also been working with the Sheriff’s Dept at their summer camps; providing bikes for a bike rodeo with obstacles. These guys do a great job working with our local youth; it was super to see them in action! Making community connections and building a network of people committed to making our area safe, healthy and vibrant is what its all about!!!

Join us this weekend for the Chickweed bike ride through town. This charity event for women’s empowerment includes an easy paced ride, a stop by Mean Mug, and plenty of fellowship on and off the bike. In just a few weeks, we’ll also be open and participating in Summer Sip, so be sure to stop by and say hello. Thanks again for helping us grow, learn and become a part of this wonderful community! Happy riding!!
