Boy Scout Troop 161 of Niwot joined Eric Bergeson and Fernando Tapia at Niwot Wheel Works to learn about the intricacies of bike maintenance on Monday, Sept. 25. The boys, under the leadership of troop master Justin Brooks, are working on their Boy Scout Cycling Badge, which is a required merit badge for the Eagle Scout level of achievement. The boys learned how to properly repair a flat and practiced replacing the tube. They also learned how to do a basic safety check and keep their bikes clean and properly lubricated. “It was such a fun event,” said Bergeson’s wife, Tammy. “The boys were so polite and engaged.”
