Hi Emily (and John) 

Emily:  I have not heard from your single mom about the bike I have
for
her 10 year old, and I just received John's request looking for a
similar bike. 

I wonder if this is the same person.  

In any event--I have a very nice Fuji BMX style, black with orange
flames, linear pull rear brake, (might have a coaster brake, too) that
was donated to me and which would be perfect for a 10 year old.  It's
free, and would require no tune up (anything it needs I'll do before I
pass it on.)  I guess your contact has first dibs, Emily, but if I
don't
hear back from her by Wednesday of next week, I'm giving it to John. 
Time to clean out the barn!!

I do have a vintage 3 spd women's bike, too, but it would probably
require more repair than you're willing to pay, John.  I'll keep my
eyes
open for a bike like the one you describe.  


Drop a line, 

Jim

Hi, all,

Here's a personal request. We have a friend who is a single mom of a
10-year-old boy, and she wants to get into bike riding with him, but
they can't afford to buy any bikes. They might not even be able to
afford the Bike Swap. Does anyone know where there might be an adult
woman's bike and a pre-teen boy's bike sitting around unused, looking
for a better home? I'd probably be willing to foot a repair bill if
they
aren't in absolutely terrible shape.

While I'm emailing you: Sunday's forecast calls for 70% chance of
rain,
with a high in the 40's. Doesn't that sound like a good day to carpool
up to Gorham and play on a flying bicycle video game? Only one other
Yes
and one Maybe has RSVP'd so far. I'd like to especially urge anyone
who
might be interested it helping run the group (teach workshops, lead
rides, etc.) to come, because ideally I was hoping it could also serve
as somewhat of a planning meeting. Come on, it'll be fun! Please RSVP
either way.

More actual useful meetups coming in April, and a new surprise this
year is being planned for May!!

- John
