We had another great evening helping out at Full Cycle, an independent, non-profit community bike project. We had the great honour of celebrating Emily's 100th good deed and we thanked her for her amazingness. Well done, Emily!

Eight GoodGymers got stuck in to the tasks Callum had lined up for us. Emma rolled up punctured inner tubes for recycling, Tom, Sabir and Rachel made rags to clean the bikes, and over the course of evening, together with Jade, Emily, Jo and Dave, we all helped to clean nine children’s bikes ready for resale or donating to children in need in the community. This might sound a quick and easy task but as anyone with a well-used bike will know, mud and grit can get in every nook and cranny! By using the three bike repair stands we were able to hang up each bike making all the nooks and crannies easier to reach! Hopefully we did a thorough job and can be invited back to help out again!

We all went in different directions from Full Cycle, walking, cycling and running, with a cool down at the Quaker Centre for those of us who wanted to head in that direction. Lovely to see Jo again - who now splits her time between Goodgym Bristol and GoodGym Kingston! 👏
