    Hello Riders

    My name is David S. Bates, known as Pappy here on Motorbicycling.com,
    I live in central Indiana. I am on a mission to help children and there family. The way things are going with the economy and gas prices, layoffs, unemployment most families can't afford bikes for there kids, that's were you can help. I would like those of you that have the knowledge to build a web site such as mine Bicycles 4 Kids - Our Mission A free web site builder here> Webs - Make a free website, get free hosting I started my mission two week ago and have already received 35 bicycles and have donated over half of them to children in central Indiana.

    That is very note worty. In my home town- ours is run
    by the police department. Stolen bicycles and abandoned
    bicycle claims. They fix up and repaint if needed and distribuate
    them out at Christmas time to children if the real owners do not
    claim their bikes in a certian length of time. I have turned over 6
    bicycles so far.

    I'm not asking for donations from anyone on Motorbicycling, unless they live in central Indiana.
    But I am asking people to do what I'm doing, build a site to help the children, the more people we get on bicycles, the better off the planet will be.

    If your not sure how to build a web site, I can help or build it for you and give you total control of the site.

    My site Bicycles4Kids is working very well, it's only two weeks old and I have already received 123 bicycles.

    My goal is to take my mission nation wide and hopefully world wide, but I can't do it alone, I need people who are willing to help.

    I think that's a terrific idea and I'm going to look in to it. Frankly there are also a lot of adults out there who are on the brink financially and some who are mentally disabled... then there are the homeless. It is a shame that so many bikes end up at the landfill when a little tweaking and sometimes none can make someone mobile and happy.

    Yes it is true about adults as well, that is why I am teaming up with The Mercy House who does just that, helping adults Shadeland Bicycle Collective | The Mercy House there are hundreds of grants federal, State and City for Non-profit organizations such as ours, you just have to search for them.
