The Bicycle Kitchen recently had a huge bunch of children’s bikes donated to them. Since they are not in the business of handing out free kids bikes, they tapped a bunch of local bicycle collectives and advocacy groups to see if we could hook up some needy youngsters in our neighborhoods.
The Bike Oven received a stack of around 15 bikes, and we’re working out the details of a giveaway to some deserving organization, or group of kids, in our area. The bikes even came with helmets – which is awesome, because kids are not allowed to ride bikes in California without a helmet.
Councilman Reyes’ office might be able to help us out with some fun schwag, or just a little it of press. The folks at C.I.C.L.E. have a few bicycles from this shipment as well – and plans are in the works to coordinate some sort of training class for the kids that get these bikes. I want to hook these new ridazz up with some blinky lights.
