So first off, let me just say that I don't know much about bicycles. I did buy a new one over the summer since I wanted to be more mobile around the neighbourhood. A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally stumbled upon The Wrench on instagram. They had an upcoming Bike Art Opening and I decided to check it out. I wasn't expecting anything but when I got there, I was in awe of the art pieces that a local artist, Dimitry Melman, made out of reclaimed bicycle parts. Aside from the art exhibit, they also had bicycles for sale and for bidding. It was so cool to see their entire space for the first time. They had all sorts of bike parts, tools and even workspaces. If you're a bicycle owner, you can drop by and fix your ride in the shop or you can even volunteer to fix other people's bikes. It's quite awesome to know that there's this kind of community here in the city.
