Seattle packs 100th container of bikes to Ghana this Saturday




(The above slideshow is from a previous Seattle VBP containter-loading party.)


I got all the details on this from my pals at the Village Bicycle Project. Alas, I'll be working in Issaquah this Saturday, but if you've got some time this weekend, you can put it to great use and have a fun time doing it by helping Meg and the others at VBP. Details below.

=================

The Village Bicycle Project will be loading a container of bikes for Ghana, Saturday April 24, in Georgetown, at Total Reclaim (1915 South Corgiat Drive), starting at 9 AM.

As always, there will be good wholesome hard work, and lots of fun. Packing them tight and closing the big double doors is always cause for celebration! Munchies will be provided.

Bring a water bottle, closed toe shoes and bike tools if you have them.

Feel free to rsvp to meg@villagebicycleproject.org

DIRECTIONS to the April 24 loading: By bike from Beacon Hill, go south on 15th Street and cross the freeway at Albro Pl. then take the first left. You’ll be on Corgiat, go about half-mile, the road curves sharply to the right, then you’ll see the warehouse, 1915 on the left. If you keep going you’ll be on the railroad tracks.

Driving from downtown Seattle, take I-5 south about four miles to Albro Pl. Swift Dr. exit 161. Go straight at the off-ramp traffic light, you’ll be on Corgiat, go about half-mile, the road curves sharply to the right, then you’ll see the warehouse 1915 on the left. Keep going and you’ll be on the railroad tracks.

From Tacoma on I-5 take Albro Pl. Swift Dr. exit 161, turn left, cross over the freeway then take the first left you’ll be on Corgiat, go about half-mile, the road curves sharply to the right, then you’ll see the warehouse 1915 on the left.

I'll be there with my wife and daughter for the morning. If you read this, and come to help, say hi to the dad dude.

I wish I were closer and not already spoken for this Saturday, this is a momentous occasion of a really outstanding project.

But I will put the word out to my bicycle tweeps and bloggers to see if some extra hands can help out.
