Hello,

The ever popular Free Ride! Bike Build-a-Thon is back again. We will be having a special night and day this week in which we will fix up many mountain bikes and hybrids. They will be sent off to Nyadire, Zimbabwe where they will provide people with a much needed source of affordable transportation.

We will be sending the bikes off fully repaired. Therefore, we need all the mechanic and non mechanic help that we can get! That means we need you to come tweak gears and brakes, fix flats, clean frames, etc. There will be snacks, good company and a whole lot of bikes to play with.

When:
Wednesday January 16th 6-10PM
and Sunday, January 20th 1-6PM

Where:
Free Ride
214 N. Lexington Ave. 15208
(inside of the Construction Junction warehouse, although there is a separate door. Walk all the way into the parking lot and our door is way down on the left by the loading docks) .

Also, if you have a truck and are willing to help transport the bikes, please contact us at freeride@bike-pgh.org.

Thanks to all the people who came and helped with our Kids Bike Build-a-Thon. It was a smashing sucess and we donated over 60 bikes to youth across Pittsburgh. Visit http://bike-pgh.org/news/blog/2007/12/13/free-ride-holiday-bike-build-a-thon-a-success
for a report back and photos.

Please Forward this e-mail and bring friends.

Thanks,
Free Ride Collective Council
