The Athens Bicycle Co-operative

Athens, Ohio has a non-profit organization of volunteers that fix and play with bikes. The intent being to create a community of people who can enjoy bikes to their fullest. To do this we need a very active and savvy bike community. We further this goal by fixing bikes, teaching volunteers about bikes, creating an environment where volunteers can teach themselves about bikes, planning bike related events, and creating ways of getting more bikes to more people.

Moving Preliminaries

Hey Athens. Sorry I caused a little confusion by posting "Bike co-op moving day" on the Facebook and not elucidating the full nature of that moving party. It was our preliminary move, for clearing away some unnecessary items and storing them at my place on Euclid Dr. Here are some pics from that move:

That's me, Jim McAuley, and Bobby Hatton in those photos. Thanks guys! In the future, the bike co-op may operate workshops in my garage pictured above, but for now we're setting up the bike co-op in a garage on Brown Ave, which was in need of some work. 
For one thing, it needed a door.
So I brought one on the Bueno Trike and hung it. That day repairs were also made to the roof, and electricity installed, with the help of Nate, Cusi, and Piper, among others. The garage door is being fixed up a little, too.

Our official moving day is this Friday, but I'll post anew with that info so it's atop the page.
