Katrina: Derailer Bike Collective Update

Larry Lagarde has provided an update, on his blog ( Also listed in my Blogroll ), to the activities of the Derailer Bike Collective:

Following are the 3 stages of the Derailer Bicycle Collective's project to help Katrina victims:

1. Build up as many bikes from our shop as we can afford in terms or our own resources (volunteer and material).

2. Drive a bus packed with the bikes and whatever else as well as volunteer bike mechanics down to New Orleans.

3. Spend a week or so helping distribute and build up bikes (the timeframe for the trip is early to mid December).

As he mentions in his piece, they are looking for volunteers, and resources.
