Transcript Improving the Ward The presence of a bicycle repair center in the third ward surrounding UH's campus has made a tangible impact on the quality of residents' lives. Story by Jessica Robertson ince its opening, the Third Ward Bike Center, located a few blocks west of the UH campus, has successfully been steering at-risk kids toward bicycles instead of trouble for more than a year. "It's a two-part vision" co-founder Benjy Mason said. "The first part was to collect used bikes and put them back into circulation along with providing a means of portable transportation for the neighborhood. The broader vision was to create hands-on educational projects... as a way to reach out to people!' After graduating from Oberlin College in Ohio, Mason and Houston native Zachary Moser worked with fellow grads Catherine Goodman and Seth Capron to bring bicycle-repair programs to the Houston area. The group secured a one- year $20,000 grant from the Compton Foundation Mentor Fellowship Program and 1,000 square feet of space donated by Project Row Houses in the Eldorado Ballroom Building at the corner of Elgin Avenue and Dowling Street. Anyone in the community may use the center, which will celebrate its second anniversary in October 2005. The Earn-a-Bike program allows both adults and children to salvage working parts from unusable bikes to fix a bike to donate to charity, which gives them the chance to choose a bike to fix for themselves. Other programs, such as after-school classes and a chopper/low-rider club, are geared toward teenagers and younger children. During open shop hours, mechanics help with bike repairs, including flat tires, rebuilding wheels and rethreading cranks. New and used parts are available for reasonable prices, and staff members also offer clients the opportunity to work for parts. Donations of used bicycles, parts and tools are welcome, but the center asks for a $5 contribution to cover the cost of repairs for each bike. 194
