Other NBW outreach program could add to Chalk Art Show

Another NBW service that I forgot to mention last week are bike safety checks. We usually are asked to do these at block parties, etc. We invite people to bring their bikes & we go through a checklist looking for safety related problems with the bike. Many small repairs are done on the spot & all problems are explained. The owner is given a copy of our checklist with needed repairs listed. This would certainly be something to do at the proposed Sidewalk Chalk Art Show & could be done sooner & it costs us much less than starting earn-a-bike classes. ~$250-$300 for parts & one instructor for an afternoon. It also serves well for recruiting kids for the earn-a-bike classes.
