#ygkChallenge: Tune-Up Your Bicycle

bicycleWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Tune-Up Your Bicycle! Spring has sprung and despite the chill that remains in the air, it is definitely time to get the ol’ bike out (that is, if you didn’t keep it up and running all winter long).  I love to ride my bike in the summer but sometimes I get delayed by tires that flattened over the winter or a chain that needs greasing and end up driving my car instead.  Get your bike Spring-ready now so you can enjoy it all summer long.  Not bike savvy?  Head over to one of our many great local bike shops for a tune up and show them some love.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.

  • I'm in! Been meaning to take my bike to Fletcher's on Portsmouth for awhile. It REALLY needs it.

  • Done! Just took my bike to Yellow Bike Action this week, and those guys did such a spectacular job with it. One of my favourite memories of Kingston last summer was just riding around the city in the evenings.
