Marc, thank you once again for sharing your fabulous art with us all! To take these excellent photos under such difficult lighting conditions is both an advanced skill and a fine art-form, and you are a master of both.

Re: Advice on a volunteer idea

Methinks it is a great idea. Though, I would start with a fixed location -- for the reason Sham stated; so people can find you. Word of your address will spread fast. But roaming around... you are nowhere. Then add mobile service as a bonus feature -- making house-calls, one might say, when needed. ...

Re: ? List of repair camps, bikes and otherwise?

My ignorance apparent. There's a difference? Going to assume repair is better :) For once... an assumption that makes no-one an ass. Ever heard of the Italian automobile brand FIAT? "Fix It Again Tony". A fixed bike soon needs fixing again. A repaired bike remains repaired for a considerable time. ...

Re: ? List of repair camps, bikes and otherwise?

Year or two ago, I saw a sign on the fence at Yellow Bikes, listing bike service camps and individuals. There were... I think 24 entries.
The question is, though.... Do they repair bikes, or only fix them? ;-)
