Today’s Bicycle Quotation:
“When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized that the Lord doesn’t work that way, so I stole one and asked him to forgive me.”

Carl Bellesfield is working on a new used bike donated by Devin Donavan last week. The bike needs a new chain, brake pads, tires, saddle, plus a stem adjustment, wheels trued.
Mary Anne Winterhoff started some preventative maintenance work on her bike.
Steve Schmitt did some routine maintenance on his bike, pumping up his tires, cleaning/lubricating his chain and checking his rims/brake pads.

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).
Devin Donovan donated a diamondback mountain bike. He took a pair of pedals.
We’re hoping someone will donate a dormer fan, preferably with two fans that operate independently and blow in different directions.
Dave Trautmann stopped by to say hello. Steve noticed Dave was on a new bike, but Dave said he has had it for over a year already, put 8,500 miles on it. If fact, Dave says he is coming up on 50,000 miles since he joined CAT and resumed riding bicycle again.
