A summer BBQ and bike workshop hosted by the Carleton University Graduate Students Association in partnership with Cycle Salvation on July 6th was an overwhelming success with fantastic participation from the student population. Bikes were tuned up and stories were told, food was eaten and friends were made at this event in support of GSA climate change initiatives and sustainable transportation.

Some of Cycle Salvation's new friends:
