Hurricane Sandy Relief Bike Ride

Hurricane Sandy Relief Bike Ride

Friday, November 2, 2012 - 2:45pm


Info on what to bring/where to go is listed here: https://www.facebook.com/events/261390857316858/

Hey bike people,

So I hope that this email finds you well after this hurricane. After reading stories about people waiting 3 hours in line for food and water, and gas stations running out of fuel, I was thinking this is a great time to get on our bicycles and transport supplies.

Here's the plan:
- Buy $20 of dry goods and/or water (Individually wrapped items that don't need heating)
- Meet up at the Williamsburg bridge on the Brooklyn side @ 3pm and/or 6pm
- Ride over and distribute items to anyone who needs them.

Depending on who can make it, we can modify the plan. If you need supplies, we can meet up and bike to you. I was thinking we could almost make an endless supply chain of people filling up water in Brooklyn, riding over, distributing it to people in need, and riding back.

Let me know if you can make it, or if this is a good idea at all. Thanks, and be safe.
