Cville Bike Lab – Community, Engagement, Bike Repair & Education

Weekly if not daily, I’m reminded that Charlottesville is a great place with people who are interested and invested in making Charlottesville a better place.

Cville Bike Lab is one of those “makes Charlottesville a better place” things.

If you have just under five minutes to spare, watch Spencer describe:

– What the Cville Bike Lab is
– What the Cville Bike Lab’s goals are
– The growing bicycle community in Charlottesville
– The coming peer to peer bike lending/sharing program (think airbnb for bicycles) and the sharing/interaction that will come from that exchange
– The part at 4:21 reminds me of something a friend is doing in Atlanta at a bank, Acru Wealth.

These are a few related links to stories about bicycling and such:

– If walkability increases property values, it makes sense that bikeability will as well.
Green Scene Blog: Biking is all about infrastructure

Connections are a funny thing. I met Spencer via Twitter. I asked if anyone around Downtown Charlottesville had a bike pump. The next thing I knew, two people had recommended the Cville Bike Lab.

* I’m sorry about the sound; the mic was giving me fits.

    I just added this video to cvillepedia’s article on the C-Ville Bike Lab if that’s okay?
