Bike Maintenance

On the 10th of June 2021, Beau from Passmore Cycles came to service 30 bikes as part of the Bike Dr program. The Your Move committee and a few willing volunteers helped organise the room for Beau in the morning.

He gave the Year Six class a quick talk on servicing bikes. He could tell exactly what we had been doing and how we had been using our bikes.

Some of the feedback from the students who got their bikes serviced was that ‘brakes responded quicker,’ from Ezra (grade 6). Elodie (year 6) remarked ‘that the brakes worked better down the hill. It felt a bit like flying!’ Beau checked the gears on Dhyaana's bike (grade 6) and she affirmed ‘the gears switched much easier.’

We are very thankful to Beau and Passmore Cycles for giving us a great, bike service. Now because of Beau we are much safer when we cycle and we are ready for the bike excursion scheduled later on in the term.

Thanks for sharing the inside story on bike maintenance at John Calvin, Renske. You have earned 40 points for letting us know how you used your Super Boost package. It is great to know that not only were 30 bikes brought back up to speed but that the kids could really feel the difference 😊
