Lyle Hartley, 51, a local St. Augustinian, volunteers his time fixing bikes for his homeless buddies. Hartley built bicycles as a teen and sees no better opportunity than to help these guys out with his skills.

 “I don’t want them to have to pay five bucks at Sprockets to have their chain fixed,” he said.

While many locals find the homeless a nuisance in the city of St. Augustine, Hartley sees the opposite; they are his friends.
