Today’s Bicycle Quotation:
“Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to cycle and he will realize fishing is stupid and boring.” –Desmond Tutu
* If you have a favorite quotation or an interesting story about cycling please share as a comment below and maybe next week we will feature it in our post
Members use BBC Tools with mechanic assistance:
Derek Vacchinio worked over his BMX wonder bike. Man he trashes this thing. Every week.
Our new Assistant Director of Operations, Lynda Moore, took her bike home today, a Giant hybrid purchased at Curt’s Cyclery. Lee and Scott went over her bike. They adjusted the brake and derailleur cables, the head set, trued the wheels and cleaned/lubed the drive train.
Lee Poole-Smith helped Steve change the batteries in one of his rear lights.
The B.O.B Ilbex Trailer is ready for borrowing. It comes with a special quick release axle for your bike so it’s easy to put the trailer on and off your bike.
Bike Library Activity (See what’s available now!)
The 6PM ride is into the heart of the storm. Lightning and thunder no extra charge. Free facials.
John Hoffer, John Tocado & Family, Barrett Ladd & Family, Frank Pavlick & family/household, Scott Slingerland, Steve Schmitt, Chris Vitalos, Riedy family.
This week’s donations:
The BBC accepts donations of bicycles, bike parts, tools and supplies on Thursdays from 5-9PM and Saturdays from 8AM to 4PM at 1935 W Broad St. in Bethlehem. We provide a receipt for all contributions and we are a 501(c)3 educational charity under the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
John Schubert donated a B.O.B Ibex Suspension Trailer many years ago. It is still in excellent shape and is now available again to CAT/BBC members for borrowing. Great for camping on the trail.
Lynda Moore donated a micro wave oven.
John Zachman donated two bikes, some tires and other parts.
Right now we are also hoping someone will donate a work sink we can install in the BBC.

Khiem Vo put together the report for today, picked up all the litter on the block, worked on the new security camera system and took a training ride to downtown and back.
