A Night At The Shop

The new north location of The Edmonton Bicycle Commuters Bikeworks has been an incredible success that is due in no small part to the indescribable group of volunteers who show up every night to make sure that people’s repair needs are met and sometime the volunteers outnumber the members and guests by a wide margin.

Tonight was one of those nights and it was fun to shoot everyone’s winter steeds… Robert is usually the first person you will meet when you come to Bikeworks north and besides being a wonderful volunteer he plays a mean guitar and sometimes opts to play while people work.

This rather beautiful Kuwahara Eclipse was donated and sold a while back… it was one of those bikes that was purchased with what was probably good intent and probably sat unused for 25 years and now it is seeing regular winter duty.

Bikes…

Michelle does a great job of holding the fort down…

My BRC hybrid… those skinnier tyres have been very good in the snirt.

More bikes…

 

This place is much a social hub as it is a bicycle shop where new and old friends can come together and talk shop or catch up on what everyone else has been doing… it creates a wonderful sense of community and sometimes people just stop in to say hi and get a break from the cold.
