Bicycle news roundup
REI pledged $10 to the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition for each bicycle parked at the grand opening of its new store in Mountain View, California, with a cap of $5000. Volunteers parked 594 bicycles at the 3-day grand opening this last weekend, so the SVBC will receive the $5000 maximum amount. If you're looking for a fund-raising idea for your bike organization, bicycle parking can be a good way to raise funds.
