Successful bike light giveaway

Despite the cold, wet weather there was a good turnout for the FABB bike light giveaway at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in the Culmore area. Many service workers and others who depend on bikes for transportation live in the area. The church provides many services for the community and they spread the word that lights would be available.

Fortunately the rain was light and the wind didn't blow our tent away. Thanks to all the FABB volunteers for coming out, to Nohemy Miranda of the county bike program, to Spokes Etc. of Alexandria for use of the tent and the services Ryan one of the shop bike mechanics. Thanks also to St. Anthony's Catholic Church for hosting the event, to bikes@vienna for use of the tables and chairs and for help with purchasing the lights, and to Transurban/Fluor for the grant that allowed us to purchase the lights.

It was a great event. Kudos to Fionnuala and Bruce for putting this together. I have a few more pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/suburbanista/4112713060/. It was a whole lot of fun to be a volunteer for this. I look forward to the next one.
