LADIES AND GENTS!
THE TIME HAS NOW COME!
Bike4Life Homeless Food Drive 2015!
The team is now preping and gearing up for our 2nd annual homeless food drive! As we begin planning routes and food quantity, we also need to start gathering funds! Last year we raised a whooping $660 towards our goal and now with even more people following us and wanting to join our cause, we know that we can surpass that! BUT not only do we need money, WE NEED LEG POWER! WE NEED YOU! Without cyclists we cannot move the food to feed the homeless. So within the coming week we will have a submission form out that you guys can fill out to get yourselves on the team lists! Got some buddies that youd like to ride with? BRING THEM! EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Be on the look out for that form coming shortly. In the meantime, here is out GOFUNDME page. Where you, your family, friends and everyone you know can donate to our cause. little or small, it helps and goes a long way.
GEAR UP AND BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MORE INFO!

--UPDATE--

OVERVIEW: GROUPS OF FIVE (NO MORE, NO LESS), EACH GROUP WILL RECEIVE 2 FREE INNER TUBES FOR REPAIRING PURPOSES. FREE INNER TUBES!

Description:
Groups will head out in numbers of five, please no more, no less. If you arrive with a group less than five, you will have to wait to be grouped with other impartial groups. Each rider has a specific role/thing to carry. These are as follows:
Rider 1: Hot food
Rider 2: Hot food
Rider 3: Fruit
Rider 4: Snack/Beverage (most likely water bottles)
Rider 5: Leader/Repair tools

We will provide each group with two free inner tubes, and ask that you bring your own tools in case a member on your group gets involved with a flat or any other incident (15mm wrench, tire lever, portable air pumps, allen keys, etc). That said, it is essential that you find a person in your group that knows how to replace a flat. Thanks! Any questions please refer to our "About Me" section, or personally message myself (Moises Hernandez), Victor Gonzalez, Johnnay Saenz, Michael Angel, or Jason Saldana. Thanks everyone, and don't let the weather discourage you doing a great deed!
