ARAMARK Pick-up, a Work Party, and Perpetual Cycle Final Tally

On Saturday, March 3, 2012, ARAMARK came by the house again and picked up about 46 bikes to take to the warehouse in Seattle. They are on their way to packing the 4th container! A packing party will be held on Saturday, March 10th to get things loaded up. The work party will be at at 3901 First Ave South next door to Schooner Exact Brewery.  If you have an hour or two to pitch in we certainly could use your help. 

Tim Todd at Perpetual Cycle in Kingston was kind enough to donate a big pile of bikes to us. Tim was repairing unwanted bikes and distributing them locally but has discontinued doing so and is selling his bicycle business as well. (Want a new business venture?) Don and I have made several trips over there to pick-up bikes and to scavenge bike parts. In total, there have been 107 bikes picked up. Also, over 100 wheels and tires, lots of pedals and seats, and miscellaneous other parts. Many thanks to Tim!
