Project Ride

Megan had a gal come into the Hammer today that told her about a community project. If you haven't noticed, Boise has an influx of refugees living and making their way here. Totally awesome in my book. However, there's a need...
Project Ride's goal is to get 300 bikes, riding gear and parts together to provide these folks with reliable means ofd transpo. And I think we all have at least a bucket of parts that we can let go of, or a light we don't use etc., etc.

Sounds pretty simple to me. Get the stuff you aren't using, put it in a box and email them at: projectride.irc@gmail.com and you can arrange a time for them to swing by and grab the loot. Sorry that I can't make a pdf into a jpg, or else I'd be able to post the flyer for it all. This runs through the 31st of December, so there's time to get it done. The flyer also says that they'll be throwing a race for all ages with food and drink to cap it all off, so stay tuned.

This has nothing to do with Project Ride, but I think we should play at Civic Plaza ALWAYS.
