Please make sure to also try and tag yellow tags with as much info you can.
Let’s start dating and initialing incoming bikes to try and keep track a little better of bikes that are not being bought
Christmas town – Looking for children’s bikes, bikes that need some work and other children bicycle accessories. Please label accordingly. Courtney will pick up bikes because they have a lot of storage! Kids bikes from ages 5-18 years. Tentative plan is to give them from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Ideally bikes that retail (OTC standards) $80 or below.
New Business:
UAA Bike Club – There’s interest in starting a new bicycle club back at UAA. Lots of students don’t have access to bikes but have interest but no resources. – Talked about old uaa bike club stuff. – Looking for more of an advocacy group – more bike racks, accessible routes, safety.
-Bike-Angel – A mentorship with more experienced riders with less experienced riders. Helping with even the smallest things like where to get a fender or nice rain jacket to buy / borrow.

BUILD UP BIKES – First priority! Please and thank you.
