2014 Bikes Not Bombs Bike-A-Thon

Team Big Orange Bike rides the 2013 Bike-A-Thon

Sophie, Clementine and I will be riding 30 miles in our CETMA Largo as part of the Joy-Riders Team, on June 8th, in order to raise funds for Bikes Not Bombs. This will be Clementine's longest ride yet! This is a big bike. It has a plywood box. The kids will be my cargo. People will say we're crazy. Please, sponsor our lunacy as generously as you are able. We appreciate your support to help us each reach our fundraising minimums. Thanks!

The BNB Mission: Our Mission Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change. We reclaim thousands of bicycles each year. We create local and global programs that provide skill development, jobs, and sustainable transportation. Our programs mobilize youth and adults to be leaders in community transformation.
