Yesterday I checked my voice mail and there was a message from Josh. He had a donor giving him more bicycles than he could take for his co-ops in Chamblee and Clarkston. Could I take some? Our co-op is just getting off the ground and hasn’t actually opened yet. I have funding and I’m buying tools I have a few bikes but we are still working out where we will store things.
What was I saying? We still don’t know where we will store things. So far everything I’ve asked for has been provided. Anything I thought might be a roadblock has evaporated. If we are going to run a bicycle co-op we have to have bicycles in every condition. We need them in great condition, we need them in refurbishable condition and we need parts bikes. I had to take them and I had to just have faith that I will find a place to put them.
The storage problem will work itself out. The Church is where our shop will be and where storage will eventually be found. The Church is where I told them to deliver the bikes. Tonight is family night at the Church. I am expecting this pile of bicycles to draw attention and cause a lot of questions to be asked.
How could I ask for better publicity?
