So far, 2010 has brought a lot of out-of-town volunteers to NolaCycle. We've been working with some awesome AmeriCorps NCCC folks and were starting weekly volunteer days with Contemplatives in Action. But with all these great visiting volunteers, we've run into a big problem between all the NolaCycle organizers, we don't have enough bikes!
If you have a bicycle you would like to long-term lend to NolaCycle or donate to Contemplatives in Action, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're not picky about type or size, but it would be best if the bike were in working condition. We can replace a chain or fix a flat tire, but we are a little too short on time and money to do major repairs.
Ideally, NolaCycle would like up to 6 bikes to borrow through the spring. Contemplatives in Action could greatly benefit from a few donated bikes as they help provide volunteers to a number of projects serving New Orleans. You can learn more about them at http://www.contemplativesinaction.org/.
Also, if you're a skilled bike mechanic, NolaCycle could also greatly benefit from donated repair services. Lauren and Scott have a couple of bikes that need minor repairs but neither of us have time to tinker at Plan B or money pay for professional repairs in the next couple weeks. If you could help us out by fixing those bikes this weekend, we would have up to 3 bikes to loan to volunteers.
Thanks for your ongoing support!
Lauren & the rest of the NolaCycle team
