If you don’t already know, CJ and the Wrench Raiders in Portland have launched their Tricycle Campaign to get enough donations for the next step in their intiative of helping homeless and less fortunate people get bikes and get their bikes fixed (as in repaired, not hipster-ified). They’re a bunch of nice folks who go around helping people. How awesome is that? But they need your help to make it happen, by donating to their tricycle fund.
