Walker came up with the idea and applied for a Communities Putting Prevention to Work grant to purchase the tools and supplies on October.
Since then he has set up his repair station at the Mercado San Agustin Farmers Market on Thursdays and spent a few days at the Menlo Park Elementary Schools — helping to fix 200 bikes.
Walker said most of the repairs consisted of flat tires, broken brakes and rusty chains.
Walker said grant funding has run out and he is trying to secure additional funding to continue the project.
“We are kind of going into the next phase,” Walker said. “What do we do, where are we going to get funding? The funding is pretty minimal if you get a lot of volunteers to help replace the spare parts, but the outcome is great.”
Walker said if he can secure a little finding, he’d like to spend more time in schools.
“If we had some minimal funding we could go a long ways,” he said. “Mostly I would like to go to neighborhood schools and do awareness programming. The real thing I want to focus on is getting kids used to bike riding as a form of transportation. Once they do, it carries on through high school and then they not going to get that pressure to buy a car and get into that whole trap.”
