I'm likely to be a key worker in the weeks and months to come - currently a medical student but signed onto the volunteer roster to take pressure off colleagues in hospitals
We won't receive any money for it and I've lost my zero hours income, whilst I still have time pressures of my degree's E-learning to keep up with - so as an amateur to bike maintenance I don't have the self-isolation time or toolage to DIY everything.
There's similar people like me within my housing association (Poplar) and med school - wondering if LFGSS or anyone could safely offer some bike assistance - I'm wary about the state of my bike and how to get it sorted out before I become a high risk individual and occupational hazard!
Where are you based?
Can you share pics of the bike and what your concerns are
I am mostly talking out of my ass, but Balfe's bike does a lot of volunteer bike surgery type thing for schools, no reason why they can't do this I guess.. but how safe do you think it might be if they were to set up a surgery type thing to help you and your fellows.
I don't work for Balfe's and they don't have a presence on here but I have gotten to know they very well in the last couple of years...
If you can get to me in Streatham Hill I’m happy to help sort bikes for key workers, have a small amount of chains, cables, pads etc too. I’ll need to do it isolated in my garage at night though probably, but I can make it happen.
