Bike Repair Clinics

Free Bike Repair Clinics

Kids Bike Lane offered three no-contact free bike repair clinics in 2020. Two were conducted at St. Bartholomew Episcopal Church on Enos Way in Livermore. This is the location of a twice weekly food distribution service for at risk families, seniors, and homeless. During the mid-week distribution of lunches at local schools two KBL Board members were present to make reservations for bike repairs to be done on Saturday.

On Saturday clients brought their bikes at scheduled times and left them to be repaired. After repairs were completed the client was contacted and returned to pick up their bike. Everyone was kept safe by wearing masks, keeping safe distance from one another, sanitizing the bikes upon receiving them and before returning them, and by having just two repair stations with distance between them. All the clients who brought their bikes and the KBL volunteers felt that these repair clinics were a great success. A third repair clinic was conducted in Brentwood by one of the KBL Board members in cooperation with Village Community Resource Center.
