I headed to REI yesterday to get a much-needed pair of new sandals and drop off some bike maps. A banner over the entrance announced BIKES FOR THE WORLD was going to be here today gathering unused bikes and sending them to the developing countries. I talked with Janet Brown, who received the first bike when she was still setting up the information table. Janet was helping collect bikes that would be sent oversees where they would be used to help provide inexpensive transportation, like a global Velocipede.
Discovering programs like this show that there is a bike movement in and around Baltimore. Thanks Janet helping get more people on bikes!
