greatest idea i've heard today.
George scrounges used bikes and works on them some to resell. He would be
willing to donate for something like this as well.
In the past, he has taken several bikes a year to Still Creek, but they seem
pretty saturated right now.

Subject: BVC-CHAT Bike to Work Day-Bike Giveaway
I have a gently used 2-year old Trek 800 Hybrid bike that I'd like to donate
to BVC, so BVC can then find a person who cannot afford to buy a bike and
who has an immediate need for a bike so they can get to work. The bike is in
great shape. It has a platform on the rear and a front and rear light. It
has standard pedals. I was inspired to do this yesterday, because I noticed
many bikes at the Shammy car wash and found out many of the workers bike to
work every day. I asked if anyone there had a need and they said everyone
had a way to work. Then it hit me....BVC finds a needy individual and gives
the bike to them on bike to work day at Freebird's or wherever. I just
wanted to toss this out, get some feedback and determine if this would be
feasible. I'm wondering how we would determine the recipient. My idea was
someone who had low income and no transportation. It could be a worker or
student who needs transportation. What do you think?
