CAT members using BBC Tools with mechanic assistance:
Cathy Frankenberg moves her water bottle carrier, lock, basket, lights and rear fender over to her new bicycle library bike. Steve helps.
Lee Poole-Smith builds a rear wheel from scratch for the first time without guidance or instruction.
Cathy Frankenberg started the course. She progressed rapidly through the basics. Cathy is committed to learning to use a bike for transportation, something only 1 in every 2,000 people is doing in the Lehigh Valley. CAT is here to help her. After an hour and a half Cathy is riding the streets of Bethlehem, confidently taking the lane and avoiding parked car doors. She leaves with a library bike. Steve is her instructor.
Lee Poole-Smith builds his first wheel from scratch, with no guidance, figuring everything out using logic only.
New & Renewing CAR-FREE Members Today:

We must move at the end of July or August. We are catching up with the recycling of scrap, such as wheels that can’t be used. Most of them have to be separated steel from aluminum by cutting the spokes off.
Lee Poole-Smith and Ron Teodora are the only volunteers who braved the heat today.
