Hi Emily, and all you NorCal Burners!
Here's the deal: Here in Nevada City/Grass Valley area, I know a bunch of burners in the teaching community. One of our middle schools has this fab state-of-the-art tool truck, loaded with all the gear needed to meet any bike's rehab needs!
We are trying to set up with that teacher to maybe have his bike class sponsor our bike needs by donation, as a fundraiser for them- they build bikes and donate them to Loaves and Fishes and people who need them in Sacto. So, for a few bucks each, they could provide our service and minor parts needs.
Then, we would also have everyone bring crazy-playa decoration stuff, and do that, too. I have a lot of cool stuff, and everyone should bring theirs!
Finally, if possible, we want to have a sympathetic welder there, at low cost, to help make the bike-dreams come true for the adventurous among us! If you Google "crazy bicycles" or similar, you'll end up with some out-of-the-box bike ideas!
So, that's the idea. Now, we just need to get ahold of some local folks to pull this all together! Unless some other community wants to host... :)
