The Bike Chain opens amid fanfare
A party of music, food, and bike races on the SAC lawn yesterday launched The Bike Chain, a student-run bicycle repair shop that will operate out of OISE’s underground parking lot.
“The barriers to bicycle commuting at U of T and in Toronto are enormous,” said one of the coordinators, Carlene Martin, in a press release.
The Bike Chain will aim to break down those barriers with workshops on bicycle maintenance and repair. Experienced mechanics will be on standby with tools every weekday afternoon to teach students and faculty, and do repairs with bike parts sold at cost.
