TBR Bikes Go To Malawi

Last fall, Troy Bike Rescue collaborated with BandaBola Sports Foundation to get about 7 complete and working bicycles to the village of Chituka in Malawi. 

It looks they arrived!  Keni Banda, a leader of the organization, says "I am back from Malawi and would like to take this opportunity thank you for the donations of the bikes for our volunteers in Malawi, Africa. The bikes have allowed our volunteers to travel long distances between schools some as far as 2hr-3hr rides. The demand for bikes is endless and hope you will continue to support our cause."

Want to help pave the way for better bike infrastructure in Troy??
Please attend this meeting!!

TransportTroy Citizen's Working Group needs your ideas and your help. This is the first in a series of three meetings to be held at our unofficial community meeting space - the old Weed & Seed office on the corner of 6th ave. And Douw St. in North Troy (just a block south of Troy Bike Rescue).

Ideas generated through these sessions will ultimately be incorporated into TransportTroy's final report and recommendations to the City. This is an oppotunity to influence some decision-making on behalf of appropriate, healthy, and green transit - bikes!
