Free bike repairs

At the University of Copenhagen a new initiative has been set in motion. It's a bicycle repair shop, and the service is free for all students and employees. Peter Lange brought the idea back from a university in Canada, and decided to open a bicycle repair shop at his university.

Normally you have to pay to get your bike fixed, but now you can bring your bike and volunteers are ready to help you to fix it. They have enough spare parts to fix a flat tyre but you have to bring your own spare parts if it's a bigger operation.
