Apologies for usurping the list momentarily for
begging purposes, but this is a really great,
homegrown bike program asking for help. It's run by a
few friends of mine, and they need some bikey love to
keep running. I just donated $25 at the link below,
and it's fast and easy. I'd like to see more of my
neighbors' kids on bikes -- wouldn't you?
