Nasson Bikes will be open Friday afternoons from 2-5 for drop in repairs. There will be a limit of 4 people at a time. Please use a mask when in the bike center, and use gloves while handling tools. Gloves are available on a limited basis in the shop.

Sanford Middle School Bike Club ride

This was just one of two rides of the Sanford Middle School Bike Club the other day. The club has really grown, and the school will be supporting the club with it’s own bike room. We have plans to equip the bike room with tools and equipment to support the fleet of bike in the school. Kids will also be able to maintain and repair their own bikes in the room.

You can help with a matching contribution to the Middle School bike room fundraising page. https://www.classy.org/fundraiser/3148316

I plan on being at the shop on Friday afternoons this summer from 2 to 5. As the doors to the Nasson Community Center are locked, please contact me via email nassonbikes@gmail.com or call/text 207-590-9432 to arrange a time to work on your bike or a project bike. Please bring a mask if you are unvaccinated.

Nasson Bikes hosted a ride for the Parks and Rec. summer camp boys on Thursday. We had 16 boys enjoying riding the Mousam Way and portions of the Rail Trail.

We really enjoy these rides and had great support from the counselors. Many thanks to Susan Roeder-Knight who has supported these rides as well as leading the Middle School Bike Club.

Bridge Students working on Bikes Friday

Friday Nasson Bikes brought some stands and tools to the Bridge. With better ventilation and more space for covid prevention than the Bike Center, we began work on the Bridge’s fleet of bikes. With the Rail Trail a few blocks away, the Bridge uses bicycles for physical education. Working on the bikes adds some unique learning opportunities for the students.

Our Friday afternoons at the Bridge is an additional step in providing services in 2021 to the youth of Sanford and Springvale.

A Giant Mountain Bike from Nasson Bikes will help Jared get to P. T.

Jared has been a regular at Nasson Bikes for several years through The Bridge Program. Jared has been accepted in the Marine Corps, joining up this summer. Recruits start early with Physical Training and Jared needed a way to get there. Nasson Bikes was able furnish this Giant Mountain Bike to ride there.

Thank you Jared for volunteering to serve our country, and we wish you the best!

CenterforG

Janice from the Center for Grieving Children came by last week to pick up two bikes we rebuilt. They are going to a family Janice is supporting. I am glad we can help!

Nasson Bikes will be closed while schools are closed as a response to the Covid19 pandemic. We hope everyone stays safe, and hoping our great Sanford trails will dry up so everyone can enjoy some outside time.

Nasson Bikes will be closed for it’s 2-5 session Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. We will be open Thursday.
