Many of us NTPers have purchased great new bikes recently and may still have our old ones lying around the house. Why not finish spring cleaning by donating it to a worthy cause?
Bikes for the World collects bicycles and sends them to other countries where people are less fortunate. You can check them out here: http://www.bikesfortheworld.org/. Also, the World Bank is having a collection day on Saturday, June 6 from 9:00 - 12:00 Noon at the main building 1818 H Street NW (Farragut West). Note, they've made a request for a $10 donation toward the shipping cost.
The contact at World Bank is Adam Rubinfield, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are doing the training tri, why not ride your old bike one last time on June 6 then ride on over to the World Bank to say goodbye then take Metro home?
Is this an example of "recycling"?....
....You just never know what some people will try to peddle.
Not trying to undermine the World Bank's bike donation program, but Chuck Brodsky & Co. run Achieve Kids Triathlon Camp in DC. I don't know if they formally accept donations of bikes, tri clothes, and schwag, but it looked like most of the kids had hand me down (or borrowed) bikes at their race. If anyone knows if Achieve Kids Tri Camp accepts donations, please post here. I have some extra stuff that I'd be willing to donate.
Also, when is that camp this year? Do they need volunteers?
