There is a new "mobile" bicycle repair business open on Pine Island. Cindy's Cycles LLC is offering all types of bicycle repair from fixing flats to complete bicycle rebuilds and many repairs can be made in your own driveway.
Cindy Abele has been living on Pine Island for 25 years.
"I was a tennis pro for most of my life," Abele said. "This is the start of a second career. For exercise I like to windsurf and ride road and mountain bikes. Five years ago I decided to go to bicycle mechanics school. There are only two schools in the country that will certify bicycle mechanics. I went to the United Bicycle Institute in Ashland, Oregon, and became certified in 2008.
Cindy Abele has opened a “mobile” bicycle repair business open on Pine Island.
"Here in Southwest Florida mobile bike repair is relatively scarce," Abele said. "So the complete service I have to offer is new to Pine Island. I can do anything from fixing a flat tire to a complete rebuild."
The new business offers free pick up and delivery.
"Sometimes, if the bike doesn't require parts, I can repair the bike right in the customer's driveway. But if it needs parts I will pick it up and deliver it back to the customer at no cost," Abele said.
"I am offering this service to the people of Pine Island and Matlacha," Abele said. "Look for my ad in the Pine Island Eagle."
