A big catch in the pursuit of reviving bicycle use in the United States* is teaching and training cyclists how to use and repair their bicycles properly and efficiently.
Thankfully, students at Berkeley are taking the initiative to offer maintenance lessons and free mechanical checks for interested riders as part of BicyCAL. To make their offer mobile and flexible, they use an Xtracycle converted bicycle to haul their work stand and tools around to various locations around Berkeley campus.
We applaud and cheer BicyCAL for volunteering their time and energy to building a safer, happier cycling community.
