Adopt a Family Bikes is looking for three bike trailers (the type with a roof) to fill the needs of three homeless people from Trinity House homeless program in Walnut Creek. Go to for drop off location and times (former Blockbuster in Alamo plaza, generally 12-4 Sat. & Sun, but double check the website for times).

It is crunch time. We have more bikes now than we can repair. Volunteers are needed to help clean and repair almost 250 bikes. Experienced bike mechanics are especially needed. The shop is open:
Fri. the 14th 7-9pm
Sat 15th 10-6
Sun 16th 10-6
Wed 19th 7-9pm

180-C Alamo Plaza (Safeway shopping center - old Blockbuster location)
