Bringing a bike back to life

George signed up for Bikeability Fix at the last minute after being inspired seeing the reception children receiving balance bike training in the playground.  

The school office got in touch with his Dad who brought his bike in for the afternoon bike maintenance session.  With two flat tyres it was unrideable.  In the first session he pumped up the front tyre and found the back one needed a new valve.  He also oiled the chain. 

George’s Dad (with a bit of guidance from our office) got a new inner tube in preparation for the second session.  The final session involved learning how to fix a puncture so George was able to put the new inner tube in with his Dad afterwards.  Both George and his Dad were really pleased that we helped give the old bike a new lease of life and are happily riding as a family now.
