On your bike, get ready, go…




Thank you Sandwich Kiwanis for a marvelous workshop with Eric Hillebrand from Sturgis Charter School.  What I felt was really great was how Eric builds bikes from ‘parts’ and more, i.e., he’s made some really ka bikes from dump runs, finding the frames and then retrofitting and re-inventing the bike for use.  And it was a beautiful day to work on bikes outside.  Eric brought tons of parts and experience for the participants.  Let’s bike more, walk more and just get out there. Thank you!IMG_4695 IMG_4697 IMG_4698 IMG_4699 IMG_4700 IMG_4701 IMG_4702
