Neighborhood Bike Works

Leland,
We are delighted to hear from you.  We had just begun a movement to do what you are suggesting or something similar, and we would be thrilled to avoid reinventing a wheel that you have so finely trued.  Please join our meeting on Tues. at 7:30 (you are welcome to come earlier) at my house,  in Wayne (directions attached) and help us make a great leap forward in our work.
This came out of the SRT incident and a speech that I heard reminding me of the need to do good work.  I thought that in addition to the preventive actions being taken, we should think about what we can do to break down the barriers that contribute to the hostility.  Others were quick to jump in, and of course your model was cited.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
Best regards,
Barbara Rosenberg
