Help load a shipping container full of donated bikes for the Village Bicycle Saturday

The Village Bicycle Project sends bikes to villages in Ghana and Sierra Leone where people often do not have an easy means of getting around. The organization also trains locals in bike repair skills and sends them tools. They focus on the special needs of the girls and women and the ways bicycles can help them.

Basically, the Village Bicycle Program is totally awesome. And you can help them out Saturday by lending a hand loading a shipping container full of donated bicycles destined for Ghana.

The load-in will be in Georgetown at 1915 S Corgiat Drive (Total Reclaim/Ecolights NW) starting at 9 a.m. and hopefully finishing by 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 2.

Bike Juju has the details, from VBP:

As always, we offer good wholesome hard work, and lots of fun. Packing bikes tight and closing the big double doors is always cause for celebration! Munchies will be provided. Bring a water bottle and a friend.

Bring closed toe shoes and bike tools if you have them.
