BikeMobile Fixes More Than Kids’ Bikes in Low Income Neighborhoods (WATCH)

 

Tommy Bensko went on the road to primarily in low-income neighborhoods, fixing kids’ bikes for free and giving them a hands-on education about bike repair.

“It’s been amazing,” said 12-year-old Eric Austin, who hasn’t been able to ride for months since his bike’s tire popped. “It’s been like the best feeling I’ve had for a long time.”

He feels pride too, because now he knows how to fix the flat himself.
