Check out our logo for our upcoming Five Year Fundraising Campaign! Designed and colored by artist, Julianna (JP) Parr. Isn't it RAD!!!? And, mark your calendar for a fantastically fun Bike Ride which launches the campaign. It's on March 6th | 1pm | starting at the Bicycle Kitchen, of course.
Direct from an email from Arlen, one of the cooks working on the City of Lites/IDEPSCA bicycle repair outpost:
"Ramon, Emily, Mike, and I rocked a build out session at IDEPSCA this morning. Here are some photos that you may want to post on the blog. In case our carpentry isn't so obvious, that's a work bench made from old murals they were throwing away. And a cabinet/style tool wall we made from and old sandwich board they weren't using.Tools, Lumber, Screws, and (of course) Labor all generously donated by the bicycle kitchen and friends.Too bad we didn't take the extracycle or the bob trailer. There goes the street cred..."

Thanks to the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council, the kids of Earn-a-Bike can go on their bike ride on Tuesday with their very own helmets! On Thursday, Jennifer Moran and Elson Trinidad, from EHNC came to what started out to be a low attendance EAB to present the helmets which had arrived the day before. They even brought clip lights with their logo to add to the fun! We took the obligatory group shot and tried to convince the kids to let Jen interview them for their "Imagine East Hollywood" project to no avail. As Jen was leaving, the rest of the fellas showed up and they picked out theirs. Hopefully, Jennifer and Elson will join us on Tuesday! EAB and the Bicycle Kitchen say "Thanks a million!"
