Free Tune Up / Flat Repair Event - Help, Advise & Warnings
I often ride home from work, only to find some kid sitting in my driveway needing help with a flat or simple adjustment. Today I ran out and picked up more tube repair kits, and I got to thinking....
I've been thinking of hosting a community event(s) to get people together to help fix flats and give bicycles a quick tune up. Perhaps I can get a couple local store to donate some money for tubes, patches, etc... I'm sure I could get some neighbors, tools and the like for help. I was hoping for some idea, thoughts and advise.
Are there events already like this where you live?
Have you (all) ever put one of these events together?
Do they have some official name?
What suggestions would you give me?
Are there things I should look out for or avoid?
Thanks in advance.
