Let’s help deserving kids have the opportunity to learn to ride to the park, the pool, their friend’s house, and school.
This bikes being built will become part of Ghisallo Cycling Initiative Bicycle Lending Library at Langford Elementary School. Students will be able check out the bikes (and helmets, locks, lights) at no cost, similar to how they check out library books. Students can then use the bikes for transportation to school as well as other neighborhood destinations… activities that improve physical and mental health as well as school performance.
GrassIron has purchased 1 bike – and we’d love to have y’all come along and build another 2-3 bikes! The event takes place at Austin Beer Garden and Brewery, and the bike mechanics from Ghisallo will help us build them… AND there will be beer and pizza (gotta fuel up, right?!)
Sounds fun, right?! There’s a SIGN UP SHEET at the front desk. =)
Want to help but can’t be there? You can toss some $$ in the donation jar at the front desk! It only costs $200 to sponsor a Lending Library rider… that includes a bike, helmet, lock, and lights. Let’s do this!
