** BIKE DRIVE **

The first annual Bikes Not Bombs bike drive is set for Saturday, April
9th, from 10am to 2pm at JFK Middle School.  We will be accepting all
usable bikes.  The bikes will be packed and moved to Boston where they
will be shipped to bike distribution projects in developing countries.


Help is needed:
* Outreach  --  Let people know!
* Bikes  --  Bring any bikes you have to donate.
* Mechanical help  --  On day of the drive to help evaluate, and
"flatten" bikes.
* Encouragement  --  that this is worth doing!

Contact: Tom Sippel, 413-634-0101.


** STREET SMARTS BIKE CLASS **

Don't let the spring slip by without getting places comfortably on
your bike!  If you'd like to get more confident about using your bike
in traffic, come to a 2-hour "Street Smarts" class on Sunday
afternoon, April 10th, from 1 - 3pm.  Meet at 8 High St, Florence (on
the bike path), with your bike. 

We'll do a basic ABCQuick check of our bikes, do a few handling skills
in a parking lot, and then practice navigating traffic in town.

Class costs $5 - $20 dollars, sliding scale, or Valley Time Trade
hours.  Contact Ruthy to sign up.  413-586-8031.


** EARTH DAY BIKE WORKSHOP **

Pedal People will be in Pulaski Park on Saturday, April 23rd from 11
am to 3 pm holding a free informal workshop.  If you have questions
about fixing flats, understanding gears, bike fit, brake adjustments,
suspicious squeaks or creaks, or riding safely in traffic and in cold,
we can come up with answers.  Bike tools will be available.

Can't make April 23rd?  We host a similar workshop every Saturday:
