Biking through leaves

It's super nice out today! It was 55 degrees when I woke up (instead of the usual 35) and supposed to get up to 70 later! Yay!

Last night Nate, Megan, and I volunteered at Cycles for Change for a few hours. We put our newly learned bike repair skills to work and stripped a few bikes whose frames were deemed unusable. So we pulled off all the usable parts, cleaned them, and filed them away for use later when someone is building/repairing a bike and needs a replacement part. It was super fun! Though it is annoying having a constant "grease manicure," I've pretty much come to terms with it. It's a losing battle for the time being. 

For any bikers in the twin cities, I highly recommend their free classes if you want to learn about bike maintenance/winter biking. They even have a women and transgender only night every Tuesday, as I know a lot of girls are intimidated by bike shops and the fact that it's mostly dudes and the sometimes snobby attitude that can be associated with hard-core bikers. There's also Spokes in the Seward neighborhood of MPLS, which is a brand new and similar non-profit bike shop for repairs and classes.
