Whilst the Bike Fixer team set up outside Erdington Pool, we set up our stall with leaflets, flyers, maps, and program of activities at the local Co-op Supermarket.
During the 3 hours that I spent at the stall and in the wider Erdington area, I met a number of people from all walks of life, who were really geared up to find out more and get involved in the scheme and what it has to offer.
I was really pleased that people were signing up for the free bike hire, free bike fix over at the pool, and collecting maps to try out some of the new routes in the area. In one way or another we were either starting people pedalling or keeping people pedalling. Thanks to the team at St Barnabas Church for agreeing to stock some leaflets on your community information desk.
I believe that the project is in it's 2nd year of a 4 year scheme. It would be great to see a lot more people realising the benefits of the scheme.
