Cycle repairers step up a gear!
WORKERS at a special bike cafe in Ainsdale have been shifting gear to help fix well over 100 bikes for free in just seven days.
Staff at MeCycle cafe and bike workshop say they are delighted with the success of the Big Bike Revival (BBR).
MeCycle, which is part of Autism Initiatives and supports young adults with autism in work placements, is taking part in BBR - a national campaign to encourage people to enjoy the benefits of cycling - by making bike repairs for free.
Vicky Jones, MeCycle Manager, said, “During the first week we serviced or fixed 138 bikes, which was more than we did in a two week period last year.
“People were queuing up outside before we opened and as the week went on we had to turn some people away.”
MeCycle mechanics will make straight forward repairs such as brakes, cables and inner tubes, until Saturday May 27.
