VIDEO: Pregnant Woman uses Bolt Cutters to cut bike lock

Squeaky Wheel Bike Co-op held a 24-hour Bike Repair Marathon on February 1st and 2nd (2019). During which, we needed to remove this cable lock from a donated bicycle… so naturally, we handed the gigantic bolt cutters to the fairly pregnant Susan to prove a point.

Mini Vacay in Montreal (we found ourselves happily crying together)

I’d left my packing to the last minute so the evening was spent doing that. By 11pm we had everything packed in Natalia’s Nissan Versa. We strapped her Everyday Bike on to the bike rack as a final touch and finally at 12:39 AM on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 we started driving to Montreal.
