The BikeTexas Katrina BikeAid project will hold a bicycle collection celebration on Saturday, November 19, from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm. at the Bicycle Sport Shop central location (517 S. Lamar) in Austin. Everyone who donates a working bike that day is invited to enjoy complimentary food, drink and entertainment. The goal is to collect one bicycle per minute – or 540 bicycles – on November 19.
One thousand bicycles have already been collected and distributed in Texas, but demand and need still remain high. Cash contributions are also critical to the success of this important mission.
