Beau showing his old helmet while wearing a new helmet

When Beau and his friend Dylan came by the shop yesterday they showed me the helmets they had been wearing since building bikes for themselves. The bike center gives out a free helmet to our participants at the completion of a rebuilt bike. Both were displaying multiple dents and one had tire marks. Both boys were very happy to be wearing the helmets and felt it saved them from some serious injury. I was able to give them new helmets to help keep them safe down the road.

Jason tests his bike

Jason spent a lot of time at the Nasson Bike Center, first overhauling a community bike, then rebuilding this bike for himself. Up against a deadline as he is moving to Old Orchard Beach, Wednesday Jason was able to finish his bike and ride it home. It was a warm and sunny afternoon, and Jason did multiple laps around the parking lot enjoying his new ride.

 

Great job, Jason!

Theo was very excited to build this bike to ride at the skate park. We spent some time in the Nasson Community Center parking lot talking about safety and giving some tips on how to ride a bike. Notice the rolled up pants, no cuffs getting caught in the chain for Theo!

Congratulations Theo, good job!
