ResuWRENCHion pt. 1

On Saturday, April 7th Ovarian Psycos took a very important step by bringing the community of Boyle Heights the very first ResuWRENCHion bicycle repair day at Proyecto Jardin in preparation of this Spring’s CicLAvia. ❤

With the help of volunteer bike mechanics from all over Los Angeles, we helped repair and tune up about 20 bikes for kids as young as 6 to adults in their 30’s and 40’s!

A special thank you needs to go out to James and Ray from Bici Libre & Andy and Chris from Bike Oven as well as a few amazing individual mechanics like Jimmy and Edgar, Bobby and Joe from LACBC and of course the Ovarian Psycos!

None of this would have been possible without the help of Josef from Flying Pigeon LA  and Building Healthy Communities Boyle Heights who kindly donated all of the materials!

We look forward to providing more bike repair workshops and work days like this one as we prepare to open up a bike co-op in Boyle Heights next year……… stay tuned for that ❤
