Broken Bicycles and Love– Go Conrad Go!




You can’t be sad when you ride a bicycle, but if you don’t have one, then where is the happiness of riding a bike and feeling the wind on your left cheek?

If you didn’t know Conrad Solomon who Conrad’s Bike Repair on the Go is at the Carleton Place Farmers Market every Saturday in the parking lot.

Just like the famous race car drivers do — pull your bike in need of repair into Conrad’s Saturday neighbourhood pit. Conrad’s Bike Repair On The Go will  offer you  friendly and efficient service and this guy knows bikes!

I know Conrad doesn’t have a bucket list but he does have a “bikeit” list of making people happy. I personally saw it in motion last Saturday.



Someone donated a small girls bike to him last Saturday at the Carleton Place Farmers Market. What did Conrad do? He immediately fixed it up and approached a small child with her parents eating some of our great food at the community eating table. After a short discussion he found out she did not have a bike so he gave that little girl the “now ready to roll” pink bike.

That’s what we do in Carleton Place as we have heart and soul- after all life is a bike ride!
No time during the week? You can feel confident in bringing in your bike toConrad’s Bike Repair On The Go Saturdays at the Carleton Place Farmers Market. Conrad can be contacted at 613-816-8025 or email
