A forgotten pursuit

When I was racing and touring bikes in high school I thought it would be fun to someday fix up old bikes. Just for giggles.

It’s funny how God works. I completely forgot about pursuing that hobby, for more than 25 years.

Then, quite by “accident” I gave an old bike I meant to get rid of to someone in need — someone whose bike was broken. Which left me with their broken bike. Which I fixed, and gave to someone in need. Which revealed more need.

Fast forward some more, and generous donations this week, and generous help from a local secondhand shop, helped secure four bikes today, in various needs of repair. We have two ready to go now, and several more projects ahead. I am looking forward to wherever this goes.
