What a weekend!
I think it is safe to say that as an organization we were overwhelmed and overjoyed with the generosity of Calgarians at our Bike Drive with the CBC Do Crew this past Saturday. It was incredible to see the line-up of cars as people of all ages came by to drop off their bikes. A heartfelt thank you must go out to Angela Knight, who spearheaded this event and talked so kindly about us both on her radio show as well as on social media. Thanks to the Do Crew volunteers: Jeanne, Linda, Mindy, Jane, Laura, Sally, Davin, Ken, Patty, Tom, John, Frances, Frank, Anna, Nathan, Juliana, Heather, Roxanne, Lisa, Hope, Emma and Jim for spending your Saturday with us, directing traffic, collecting donations, sort, loading and fixing bikes. I hope our paths cross again soon. Thanks to our trip participants and those associated with the TWV family for bringing such a great energy and spirit to the event as well as your strong arms for loading and unloading bikes.
On behalf of the entire team at Two Wheel View as well as our partners at The Good Life Community Bike Shop, Bicycles for Humanity and the Women in Need Society, I extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the roughly 1000 bikes that were donated in under 5 hours this weekend. Our community truly is a special one.
