The Orioles Bike Cage

Today we took a load of 'retrieved' bicycles and assorted parts to the Orioles Bike Cage.
(My new-to-me bike is on the top of the pile, but it didn't stay there.)

It is located near the Orioles Community Club in Winnipeg's West End.



The 'Cage' is housed in what I think was the changing rooms for the nearby skating rink, but it has been converted to a well kitted out bicycle repair shop.

They also have a huge assortment of donated parts.

There were three volunteers working with several children when we arrived. The kids seemed to be having a great deal of fun riding around on their wheels and no doubt helping where they could.

That is great, the bikes will get another chance.

The camera I'm using now is nothing fancy, not a DSLR. I have a Fujifilm S2000HD. I used SLR's for years, then went digital a few years ago and this is my latest. It had a lot of features that I liked.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again.

Interesting... any idea how one would go about volunteering there?

There is a link to the Orioles Bird Cage ?'embedded' in the name. There is a section in that link that tells one how they can help.
