Bike LIFE! Hartford

Bike LIFE! Hartford


Bike LIFE! 2018. Yeah! When I got my bike there was many choices of bikes that I could get so it wasn’t limited. And
you got to decorate it, and you decorate your bike, which is really fun and then
they had these little competitions where you would do a wheelie and then there was other stuff. And you got a lock for your bike and the key and lights and a helmet. It was really fun. BiCi Co. is a shop that’s all about community. It’s all about connecting people who love bikes,
who care about kids, who care about making Hartford a better place for
people that love to ride bikes. And we do that through bikes. I think in a way BiCi Co. is actually less about just bikes and actually BiCi Co. is
first about community and we build community that happens to be around
bikes. And I think that’s the most important component of who we are. BiCi Co. is a place where people can get bikes. I just got a bike through one of their
programs. I had a bike but then it was stolen, so then I had to wait a long
time, and I finally got bike. So yeah, I’m really happy so we can go biking again. With BiCi Co. giving me the bike I actually do think
it’s gonna help me move around more because I walk to school because I
live too close to take a bus but I live too far to walk. That helps me get ready for soccer season for exercise and it also helps me
get to school on time so I’m not tardy and so I can learn more. BiCi Co. is the only bike shop in Hartford and one of the things I think that’s important about who BiCi Co. is are the volunteers and the members of our community of this shop that dedicate themselves selflessly to developing our shop, our program. We’ve got a really small staff for the amount of stuff that we do. I think one of the
most important elements of who we are is really reflected in our community of
volunteers and what they contribute to the shop on a day to day basis.
