Pedals 2 People

Pedals 2 People, or "P2P" to those in the know, is a Spokane non-profit. Their mission statement says it all, "Our mission is to use the bicycle as a tool to empower people and build healthier communities."

Last year they focused on sending bikes to an African village. This year they are focusing on projects closer to home. To raise money for their projects they have two things coming up.

Second, but involving more beer and bike racing is a fundraiser at the Steam Plant Grill.

First, potentially involving beer but definitely involving fun and fundraising, is the P2P Garage Sale. Here is their message:

Hey P2P supporters!

We're having our annual garage sale Saturday April 4th, from 9am -12pm. Come by for some super deals on bikes, parts, and even a dorm fridge. Last year's sale was a huge success, and we're hoping to have another great sale this year. All proceeds benefit P2P programs.

The address is 4218 S Garfield, and the garage is located in the alley behind the house. Please park on the street and not in the alley.

As always, we couldn't exist without your support--Thanks!

p.s. Please forward this email to your friends :)

So, what more do you need? A great cause and some great deals. Go check it out and build up an inventory of the pieces you need for your next project.

Until April 4, we locals can rejoice in the promise of the temperature reaching 50° for the first time in 2009. As Freddy says, "Now get on your bikes and ride!" Or as Quicksilver would say, "Less blogging. More riding."
