Terrance Johnson's Capstone
For my capstone, me and Alexander decided that we wanted to build upon the already existing bike room. The bike room had been a place that BCYC (Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia) stored their bikes for the duration of the spring. Yet the room is so much more than that so we took it into our own hands. By allowing people to visit the room we can both show them how to fix bike related issues and give them a place to relax. Fixing bikes is sometimes a hard thing to do and some places charge insanely high prices, but in the Bike Lab, we won't charge a dime. Plus we'll teach you just nearly everything you need to know about fixing a bike. Alongside learning about bikes we also offer people the chance to be apart of BCYC. BCYC will teach you many bike related skills as well as the chance to meet new people. The Bike Lab will be open during lunch and after school. During my time both being a member of BCYC and creating this capstone I've learned what it's like to plant the seed so that others may make it grow. I had no involvement in the room the previous year when the seniors had put the room together, but I can understand that they were also doing this same thing as I am now. So as a little treat we decided that our showcase would be a mock sprint. I would be the model for this sprint with a speed of 46 kpm (28.3 mph). We then placed people based on there top speed and ranked them first, second. and third. Those who placed in those sections would receive a treat. Sadly none of the people were able to beat my top speed. Still, this was only to give people a little task of what it's like to be a cyclist.
