Busy Weekend

There's entirely too many bike-related things going on this weekend. Here's a quick run-down and I am sure I am missing a bunch of things:

  • Boy Scout Troop 67 will be holding its third annual “Bring a Bike – Buy a Bike” used bike sale on Saturday April 24th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Nativity of Our Lord Gym located at 1900 Wellesley in St. Paul. 
  • The Active Living Bike Expo is Friday and Saturday in the education building at the State Fair Grounds.
  • The Minnesota Bike Summit is happening on Saturday, also at the State Fair Grounds Education building.
  • Bridge for Youth ride is on Sunday; it's only $15 and the proceeds go to help homeless youths. This is the same day (and distance) as that other ride you hear about, which happens to cost $45 and the proceeds go to support hostels for youths traveling Europe. You make the call on which to support.
  • The City of Andover is having a recycling day on Saturday and Mr. Michael Recycles Bicycles could definitely use help at this event. They get a lot of bikes that they fix and pass on to needy people at these events, and the ones that can't be used get torn down and recycled, so many hands make for light work on these days - please help them out if you can.

I am going to be in the "none of the above" category because I'll be celebrating my anniversary with the Bride at a secure undisclosed location in the Midwest, but don't let that stop you from supporting your favorite group or participating in a meeting or something.
