Pancake Breakfast / Raffle Benefiting Bikes Not Bombs Tuesday May 18th!

As promised, we've got some more details about the raffle we'll be hosting on Tuesday.

The raffle is a benefit for Bikes Not Bombs. If you don't know about Bikes Not Bombs, they are a great non-profit in Boston that recycles bicycles from the waste-stream. They use the bicycles to teach young people to fix bikes and ride safely locally and as tools for sustainable development abroad. They are a great place to take that bike that's sitting in your garage or basement longing for a good home.

Bikes Not Bombs is having their yearly bike ride/fundraiser event, the Bike-a-Thon, on June 6th. Check into registering for the 15, 25 or 65 mile ride and sticking around for the GreenRoots Festival.

Now, on to the PRIZES!!!

First and foremost, there will be pancakes for all. That is one heck of a prize for just riding your bike to the bike shop! We'll have vegan and not vegan pancakes. Some plain, others with berries, bananas, chocolate chips, and other good stuff.

Coffee and O.J. will also be served. And the last minute addition of Taza Hot Chocolate straight out of Somerville has been brought to my attention. Thanks Taza!

The actual prizes include:

O2 Helmet from Lazer
Flip-Off Skewers from Salsa
Skull Caps from Planet Bike
Cycling Caps from Salsa
Socks from Salsa
BC 509 Computer from Sigma Sport
Blaze/Superflash Light Sets from Planet Bike
Cascadia Fenders in 45mm from Planet Bike
Flip Flop Wheelset in Green Colorway from Origin8
Singleator Wrench/Bottle Opener from Surly
T-Shirts from Civia
Bar Tape, Water Bottles, Pumps, Glasses, and More!

Raffle tickets are $2 each, or 3 for $5. They will be available during the pancake breakfast and we will draw for the winners after 9:30 am Tuesday.

Thanks to Taza Chocolate, Quality Bicycle Products, Seattle Bike Supply, J&B Importers, Planet Bike and Downeast Bicycle Specialists for contributing to the raffle!

Come on down on Tuesday morning! Have some pancakes, buy some raffle tickets and enjoy the good company!
