We're Number One?

All In A Day's Volunteering

Today I went down to the Bike Library to take our overflowing trash away and our recycling, too. Upon arrival I noticed a mess which is not unusual but something about the cassette tapes on the floor and the bar plug tub upended did not seem like the usual disarray and sure enough, a quick scan of the area revealed a new volunteer hard at work!

Small, hardworking, clever and a mammal, too! The prototypical Bike Library volunteer of the future?

His work appeared to be done so I thanked him for helping and then chased him out the door with a broom. Never a dull moment!

It was raining so I first outfitted our trusty Bridgestone work bike with some Planet Bike fenders. Then I loaded up the trash can with the cardboard, paper and plastic. A quick scribble on the back to let people know who was doing what and I was off.
I had two people ask about the trailer while I was out and I told them they should get one and where to do so. Hooray for Bikes at Work trailers!

After unloading all the cargo I swung by home to pick up a couple of donation bikes that our neighbors had. They loaded nicely and I rolled back down to the library to drop them off. One is not in such great shape but the other is a nice little Centurion mixte that should make a fine ride for someone.
