Ride for the Rockaways
There are more opportunities to lend your bike to Sandy recovery efforts this weekend. Affinity Cycles is leading a ride to the Rockaways:
Affinity Cycles is organizing more bike powered Sandy relief supply caravans to the Rockaways this weekend (11/10/2012 and 11/11/2012). Last Sunday about 100 cyclists turned out.
“We are going to be accepting donations all week long and going back out again on Saturday and Sunday. Clothing is not really something needed at this point. Batteries, cleaning supplies and food are the big ticket items. Meet at Affinity Cycles at 9, roll out at 9:30. The more folks we have for the ride and distribution efforts the bigger impact we can make. There is still so much to be done.”
Meet at 616 Grand Street in Brooklyn on 9 AM both days. The ride departs at 9:30 AM and heads to the Rockaway Beach Surf Club at 302 Beach 87th Street.
Bicycle Habitat has also been organizing some rides to help Sandy victims. I’m planning another ride for this Sunday and will post more information soon once I find out what is needed down in Red Hook.
