Bike Surgery 3rd September 2011
All members with Darlovelo bikes are encouraged to bring their bikes down to the Arts Centre on Saturday 3rd September for a maintenance check and the opportunity to try some maintenance themselves. We will be there as part of the Darlington for Culture Arts Week with the kind help of Duncan from Kranks and DCC.
Bikes will also be available to hire, so please come down if you want to hire a bike out for the Autumn Term.
Healthy Lifestyles Roadshow 18th August 2011
Darlovelo were present at the Healthy Lifestyles Roadshow at the Dolphin Centre. Bike Club were also there and it was a great opportunity to let more young people know about our scheme and the possibilities of cycling in Darlington.
Some negative questions, like ‘Why would you want to hire a bike?’ from an adult, were compensated by the overwhelmingly more positive reception from most of the young people present. Sadly no hires were made.
