Get rid of your bicycle

Get rid of your bicycle

Have you not ridden your bike in the past 18 months? Perhaps not since you moved in? As it happens, we seem to have more bicycles than parking spots. Before winter is upon us, now’s a good time to think about whether or not you really will use that bike. After all, we have great access to Biketown bikes, sit-down scooters, the streetcar, and other transportation options.

If you aren’t using your bike, here are some ideas.

Daniel’s Top 5 Tips

  1. Offer it for free on our WFP website and other websites, such as FreeCycle.org or CraigsList.org
  2. Donate it to a charitable organization that can use it
  3. Ask Daniel to put it into the WFP Junk Room, and he’ll make it disappear
  4. Sell it on CraigsList, EBay, or the Facebook local marketplace
  5. Leave it where it is and without a WFP sticker, so that it will be removed during our next bicycle sweep

Tag, you’re it

Every bicycle in the WFP garage must have a tag. If yours does not, get one at the concierge desk and apply it to the stem that holds the bike saddle. Bikes without tags may be removed from the garage at any time during the year.

I have been working with websites since 1972, long before Al Gore invented the Internet. My biggest claim to fame is the fact that I crammed more than one million users into a single AOL chatroom in 1992, from which there resulted at least 1000 marriage proposals among the participants ?and three startup companies. Originally from Hungary, you will sometimes find me in hot Greece or enjoying a bit of Turkey. My sign is Virgo and I prefer white wine with my grilled cheese sandwiches.
