    A Benefit for the newly established FREE WHEELS BIKE COLLECTIVE !
    Saturday April 4th, 2009
    7pm - Meet up ride @ Prospect/River + Mass Ave in Central Square
    8pm - Benefit Party/Open Mic @ Eliconia in Allston

    $5-5000 Suggested Donation - Nobody turned away.

    Bring $$$ for refreshments/vegan pizza/raffles.

    For address and other questions call 781-820-5818, email michaelfrancisarthur (A) gmail [dot] com, or ask someone who knows.

    ---------------

    This is a benefit for the newly established FREE WHEELS BIKE COLLECTIVE.

    Some of our plans for the future include:

    • establish a free bike workshop with volunteer mechanics and/or do-it-yourself access to tools.

    • provide knowledge and skills in bicycle care and maintenance through workshops, skillshares, and open bike fixin' nights.

    • create a free of cost bike lending program for out of towners (and others).

    • create a selection of bike trailers and cargo bicycles for lending out to help people move big things.

    • organize small themed rides for fun and clowning :)

    • and so much more!

    ---------------

    Everything will be free, but right now we ain't got no money!
    Help us buy tools and other stuff to get us started by coming out next Saturday and have a wicked fun time!

    This sounds like fun, and the cause is something I could certainly benefit from as a person who is lacking in the tool department.

    I'm not trying to be a party pooper, more power to you... but until this gets going if you're lacking tools you could always go rent a little standtime at Broadway... say hi to Jason!

    this is a dream i think every committed biker in this city has - i know it was for me - and now it is becoming a reality.

    this party is going to rule shit-
    we've made pinatas for it
    will be raffling off some fun bike thing(maybe one of those goofy bell pepper bells or something of the sorts)
    will be doing basic bike repair in the front yard/on the front porch
    and hopefully a serious game of foot down.
    that is my number and e-mail up there so feel free to get at me with any questions.

    ^^ There will be more events in the future. We'll let it be known when we plan them.

    Now that we've raised some money we're figuring out how to allocate it, get off the ground, and start accomplishing our goals.
